(this is the first time I have enterd a gingersnaps creations challenge)

Here is my tag for this weeks entry,

I had to think on this one,
 how was I going to put this technique on a tag?
instead of a full grunge paper tag I opted for this frame thingy
I am pleased with the way it turned out.

I chose to use a stamp set from Creative Expressions
designed by Sam Poole for all the images,
I used nestabilities dies for the frame,
All the images were stamped with Archival ink
(Coffee & Sepia)
Distress Inks used are
Aged Mahogany, Brushed Corduroy & Walnut Stain.

I raided my Button stash & sewed them
(yes by hand lol) with a metallic thread,

The ribbon, gems, safety pins & bits
came from my ever growing stash.

Hope you like it.
I'm off to link this up,
thanks for stopping by,
Back soon,
