Compendium of Curiosities.....

Afternoon peeps, I've just managed to finish off my tag for this weeks challenge over at Lindas pad, click here to be transported to this weeks technique, which can be found on page 59, Inking and Stamping Masks.The car stamp is from Elusive images.....sorry Tim I haven't got your car stamp, the colour inks I used were Bundled Sage, Forest Moss, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo, I spritzed the tag over the masks with Cocoa Glimmer mist.....this has muted the colours of the inks for a more faded look, not intentional but I love using mists as you get a soft sheen. The clock has also been embossed in Tea Dye distress embossing powder, the cog stamp is from The Artisitic stamper and the image in the embellishment is from Crafty Individuals, I didn't think my cropodile would cut through the bottle top but t did....yay. I love making these tags for men so this one will be for my Brother-in-laws birthday card next month.

Fantastic tag Daniele - your masking and inking is wonderful and I love all your details. It's amazing what the cropodile will punch through isn't it, mine's not only a crafting tool it's a household tool as well lol.
