  1. See the background Technique from Tim Holtz for Day 8. I  used snow cap paint dabber as I do not own the stain yet, After you colour your tag you will need to re stamp your top corner again as the vintage photograph and tea dye ink will seep into the paint and you want it a crisper white image
  2. Prep all your chipboard Pieces (I cut the cogs off the on the edge piece and discarded the edge piece) by dabbing with Snow cap (I roughly cut the clock to fit and left a little at each edge to trim off at the end)
  3. Ink over the chipboard using either vintage photograph or tea dye. I used walnut stain on the clock hands to give them a different look. You want to do this so there are little areas of white showing. Dab off the excess ink.
  4. Using your charcoal run it around all the edges of your chipboard pieces making sure to get a thin dark edge
  5. Using a tissue or your fingers rub the charcoal into your chipboard by pulling it towards the centre of your chipboard. This gives a gritty sooty look to your vintage work and you will not get this look with ink or other means
  6. Using your charcoal go around the edge of your tag and smudge it in.
  7. Using the Claudine Hellmoth  multi medium in matt do a thin coat on each chipboard piece
  8. Then either use glossy accents, triple thick or Utee (I used Utee I wanted to put it all together) to coat all chipboard pieces
  9. Using walnut stain stamp the Lost and Found stamp with the People on it onto a small piece of Tissue Paper and heat with heat gun
  10. Tear off the excess tissue paper from around your image
  11. On the inked side paint with multi medium as quick as you can (or the image will start to smear)
  12. Place on tag inked side down and gently smooth out
  13. Paint matt multi medium over the top and allow to dry
  14. Stamp your tickets on the Manilla
  15. Ink them
  16. Create a mist by mixing 4 drops of vintage photograph with water in your mini mister and spray over tags.
  17. Dry with heat gun and fussy cut the tags out
  18. Ink and spray till your happy with how aged and worn the tickets look
  19. Go around the edges of the tickets with charcoal and smudge in
  20. Glue into place hanging off the edge of the tag
  21. Mist a piece of vintage lace with the vintage photograph mist. Blot with Paper towel and repeat this. Then Dry carefully with heat gun or wait for it to dry naturally
  22. Glue in place at the bottom of your tag
  23. Place your cogs and gears where you want them and glue down with glossy accents
  24. Place your clock where you want it and glue into place (Note I made sure one of the gaps in the clock was over the tags hole)
  25. Put a hole where you want your clock hands and insert your brad through them. Then through the tag and push the brad flat at the back of the tag.
  26. Position your clock hands where you would like them to point

And that’s all there is there isn’t any more.
