Shopping Our Stash #244 - Cuckoo for You

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from SHOPPING OUR STASH

This week's challenge is hosted by CHANA and the theme is Cuckoo for You. This week we want to see clocks (stamps, paper, dies) on your project.

My project was inspired by Tim Holtz Tags of 2013 - August. Why not recreate it in March 2016 right??

Here's my tag:

I started with a manilla tag and made the background with pumice stone distress stain, spritzed with water. 

Once that was dry I coloured the Union Jack stamp with Barn Door and Faded Jeans distress markers and stamped it in the centre of the tag. Then I just went to town layering all the other images, including Big Ben on the left edge of the tag.
