Grungy Monday/Wednesday.......

Evening peeps, hope you are all well I'd like to say a big thank you for all the inspirational comments that I have recieved and thank you Lynne for letting me know about the Paris stamp unfortuately I don't have a link to get back in touch, so many thanks hun....This tag I started last night and then came to abit of a....hmmm what do I do next phase, so I slept on it ready to have another play before going to work first thing this morning, trouble is I overslept which is a first for me, but I still managed to finish the tag and I wasn't late either......lol. I have followed the technique from Grungy Mondays challenge over at Lindas for the background to the tag.....quite pleased with how this came out, I stamped the background with the cogs which is a stamp from The Artistic Stamper, this is a real versatile stamp and I must say I use it quite alot, I  then built up layers of stamped tissue paper using stamps from Elusive Images Edwardian men plate, the stop watch and ticket are from Crafty Individuals.
 I used Matte mutli medium to stick the tissue paper down with then painted the top of the images with some more multi medium before distressing with Brushed Corduroy, the text that has been stamped with Gold Dabber paint from Ranger is from CatsLife......I made the little tag using an image from Graphic 45 Steampunk, the metal frame tag was glittered and then dabbed with gold because I didn't like the glitter......I know, I can't believe I've just said I didn't like the glitter, me who sprinkles it on my cornflakes........lol.The steampunk utee charm I made after moulding a metal charm I'd brought but didn't want to use.......I'm saving it for a rainy day project!!!
