Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2012 Sept

Oh WOW! I can't believe that I had waited this long to finally finish my tag for Sept! Life sure can get busy.
So here is my tag:
I used a manilla tag as my base, I covered it using silver tape ( not sure what it is called) cut into various shapes.Then using various tools to give the look of worn metal. The clock face was a stamp that I  used to stamp onto grunge paper. I then used some clear crackle to give it the worn look and finished it off using distress ink vintage photo. I had those clock hands in my stash :) 
 Brenda, one of my sisters had given me some skeleton keys OMG I love them!!! I used one of them here on the tag.
I printed off the word RETIREMENT and the meaning from my computer and inked it up using vintage photo ink.
My brother inlaw Gary, will retire in Oct, my plan is to use this tag on his retirement card :) He was a train car inspector so this tag will be very appropriate for him! :)
I will post more pics once I finish the card :) until then take care.
