Friday playtime...

Golly, Friday already.The world doth spinneth faster methinks... I'm just dropping by with a little tag therapy. I have a lot of DT work and projects bubbling away and a crafty lock-in has already booked this weekend. So it's good to have dabble and ponder in ink just for fun. I decided to plunder the week's scraps and create a tag for Grungy Monday with a few other challenges in mind...Sunday Stampers by Hels and Fashionable Stamping
I can't seem to stop inking up these three amigos lately... I thought I'd give them one more go before sending them on a short break! My other stamps have ink-envy. I have festively acquired the Kraft resist papers and this is a take on the Tim Tag Two Technique from the Christmas frenzy...
I cut a tag from the Steampunk page, swiped it with Picket Fence  and coloured in sections with Vintage Photo Distress stain. I added some splats and splashes, some stamped details and edged everything Rusty hinge. I stamped the men in Black Stazon onto copper metal which I'd set onto card for strength so I could cut them out. In the background I've used a weathered clock off-cut clock coloured with Distress Stains, scrap wire and layered it all onto the tag.
The letters cut from metal tape are distressed and coloured with various Alcohol inks. I like adding little details and went for copper thread, hammered eyelets, staples and a touch or random red stitching. Lastly a philosophy tag, hanging from a swivel clasp. (I now see I forgot the seam binding finish!!! Oh well...) So that's my lot for tonight. A gal has gotta sleep so I'm signing off and going to dream of the weekend. Thanks for calling by! Sarah.
