Grungy Tag - How Efficient Am I???

It's one extreme or the other with my Grungy Monday creations isn't it? Usually on the last minute but very occasionally just after it has been set! This week's challenge is to be inspired by one of Tim's 12 Tags and use mica mists, masks and distress inks (some of my favourite playthings!) Here's what the last hour has produced:


The background was masked with some of the Tim Holtz Timeworks masks then sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mist (Perfect Copper) and stamped with a Paperartsy flourish. I made the tag using the other two Timeworks masks and a spray which I made a while ago - I cant remember what powder or which Reinker I used! I inked over both with Walnut Stain distress ink, backed both the panel and the tag with burgandy leather effect card which I scruffed up with a paper distresser, added seam binding, pearls and a cog and was finished by 2pm!!! Thanks Linda and Tim for more inspiration to get my creative juices flowing! JulieD

  3. Love this, simple elegance.
    I normally stick a small label on my mini mister to remind me of ink/pearls used.
