Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2016 August, Jane's Journal card style

It's number 8 of 12 today and Tim has combined 2 techniques again on his August tag...brayerd inks and frameworks.
This is Tim's tag.

I decided to use make a male card version.

I really enjoyed the brayered distress stains and made a cool background.

I don't have any frameworks dies but I used my Spellbinders frame die which I have had for years and works just as well.

I die cut a piece of grungeboard and some extra textures to use to replace the tile pieces.  I added some stamping and colour to my frames. I gave my new world die an airing and die cut it in black card.

Then it was time to put on my creative hat..............and here is Jane's Journal's card version of Tim's tag. The car is stamped, embossed and fussy cut out. I added a birthday sentiment as this one has gone down to Dotty's.
and a close up
