TIO - Industrial Chic

Welcome back to another challenge from Dragons-Dream Tag it On! My good friend and team-mate Gabrielle has chosen the recipe this week - for "industrial chic" and the ingredients are; vintage brown, clockwork or cogs, and industrial imagery. Don't forget to use at least one real stamp on your tag.

Here is my tag - it's one of the jumbo ones.
I started by using the clock and cog masks (Tim Holtz) and frayed burlap DI.

Stamped the cogs (Artistic Stamper) in coffee archival

Then I stamped some of Tim's images - from the Steampunk and Remnants sets, in black; and the pointing finger and sentiment are also Tim's, on scraps and added to the tag.
 The clock is by Maya Road.
Finally added some washers from my stash and a ribbon.

Hi Love your tag. You put so much work into them, do you give them as presents seem such a waste if they are not. Big Hugs JO.xxx

Also loving this tag. I love that pointy finger stamp too.

Ooh - guess what? I found my clocks mask - the Tim Holtz one! Like what you've used up there - only had it lost since we moved house! Found it in my decluttering the other week :D Yay!

Holy cow. Is there any steampunk inspired stamp or mask you DON'T own? What a lovely array of awesome cogs and embellishments, too. I'm in LOVE with this tag. Very, very creative.
