the challenge is SHOW YOUR GRUNGE,
head over there to find out all the details.
Here is a tag I made, I think it fits this weeks criteria perfectly for me,
Here is a list of the stuff I used,
STAMPS & DISTRESS INK'S as follows,
Wendy Vecchi stamps :- Butterfly off (make mine mini art) distress ink (faded jeans).
Sentiment & Face off (It's face art) distress inks, (brushed corduroy, aged mahogany, weathered wood).
Leaves off (be inspired...make art) distress ink (peeled paint).
Paper Artsy stamps, Flowers off (flora and fauna set) distress inks (aged mahogany & fired brick).
The Artistic Stamper stamps, for the Background (punk plaid & chicken wire), distress inks (brushed corduroy, weathered wood & bundled sage)
I also used Archival ink for stamping with,
Tim Holtz, Alterations Die caged bird,.
Manila Tag size 16x 8 cm,
& from my stash wire,bead embellishments & flat backed gems,
The glossy card I die cut the cage from has a wood grain affect on it,
(hope you can see how cool it looks from the photos)
& for the grungy background I used the scribble stain technique
on page 34 of Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities book.
This is tag number 3 I hope you like it.
