I have been watching Tim Holtz videos on youtube. So got a little inspired. I made a bookmark for hubby ages ago but its getting a little ragged, plus he always has more than one book going at a time. So all the stamps are from Tim Holtz Playful Journey set. I first embossed the clock with clear embossing powder. Then I used tumbled glass, chipped sapphire and vintage photo distress inks to color the tag. Of course that wiped right off the clocks, love love love how that looks. Then I stamped the striped pattern with the chipped sapphire, and stamped the sentiment and the bike in walnut stain. Added some ribbon and took a quick pic and its already stuck in a book lol.
