12 Tags of 2012 - September

So I have FINALLY got round to doing my September Tag for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2012!
As usual with me I didn't quite have everything so I made a few things up but I think that is kinda the point to inspire you to be creative!

Here is my tag:

 So for my background I had no metal foil tape, so attempted to make my own by just running regular kitchen foil through my xyron! It worked fairly well but obviously isn't quite as thick as the real stuff, and obviously my alcohol inks were a bit more 'girly' rather than the rustic metal look of Tim's but I really liked this so stuck with it.
 I cut this globe out using my Cricut as I knew the wording of the sentiment I wanted to use, this I also did on word printed it out, cut out with one of my nesties and then distressed with DI!
 I had no metal numbers either, so cut this out with my Cricut again and then embossed with Platinum UTEE and I really like the effect!!!
So all in all very happy with my final result! I added a key I'd molded from Clay and a little letter ornament as my finishing touches!

I shall also be entering this into Make It Monday
