Tag time

Evening! I have struggled today with getting inky and messy. The flow would not happen so I went blog hopping looking for inspiration, when I came across Sam's tags. Sam is a twitter mate; we get to share our creations with lots of other twitter mates which is great. You can see Sam's creations here.

Ah ha! I thought I'll do a tag - so I cut a couple and got started.

I didn't do any photos but here is how it went. I distressed the tag using weathered wood and scattered straw. This seems to be a colour combo I use a lot on tags ( another will be shown later in the week) 

I then used layering stencils from Tim Holtz which I do use a lot I've only had them about three weeks but use them in someway on most of stuff. A creative individual stamp was then placed in archival expresso and some of Tim's tissue paper, and a couple of stamps in black.  Next came some embelishments. 
And this is what I got.

I am going to enter this into these challenges

Thank you for looking any comments will be appreciated
