12 Tags of 2012- July

Here is my July Tag for the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2012 fun over at Tim's Blog.
I love that Tim encourages us to be inspired by his Tag, I love love love his but don't have the same supplies that he used so this is my version. 
I cut the Tag out using the Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplate Die then inked it up with Ranger Distress Ink in Festive Berries.  I spritzed the tag with water and inked the edges in Black Soot.  I used one of the 4's from the Grungeboard Digits and Punctuation set, inked it up with Faded Jeans Distress Stain, then used the Ranger's Inkssentials White Pen to highlight the Harlequin design and inked the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.  I stamped the Tim Holtz CityScape with Black Soot, stamped the Tim Holtz Stars with Distress Embossing Ink and white embossing powder, then stamped a few of the stars from the Graphic 45 Le Cirque 1 stamp set and used white embossing powder on them.  Before attaching the number 4 I sprayed the whole tag with Ranger's Perfect Pearls Pearl Mist. I colored the Seam Binding with Festive Berries and Faded Jeans. 

Thank you for looking!
