UK Stampers Challenge 40 - N is for Numbers

Hey Peeps :O))

I have made a tag for the UK Stampers challenge which this week is N for Numbers.

Thirteen is one of those numbers that you either love or loathe...I happen to love it cos my birthday is on a 13th so it is a lucky one for me LOL

This tag was made using Distress Inks, Tim Holtz stamps, Grungepaper and Grungeboard, along with a few dabs of Distress Stickles and Glossy Accents.

I covered a tag with Distress Inks and sploshed about with water to make it grungey...then I stamped a huge Tim Holtz stamp which is made up of numbers, then I used a different colour ink to add the floral stampy elements. I stamped the card image onto Grungepaper, coloured this with more Distress Inks and then cut out and popped onto the tag. The words are made up of alpha's from Stamps Away and the Grunge number border at the bottom was made by painting palin grungeboard, stamping, adding Distress Inks and then Distress Stickles. The clip is from a little collection of hardware that I bought but binned the packaging so can't remember who made it. All the stash that I used today,apart from the hardware can be bought from The Artistic Stamper.

Thanks for should see my fingers...well and truly inky, just how I like it!! LOL

I was lucky enough to see this in the flesh today - I even got to touch it! :)
As is so often the case with these things, the photo doesn't do it any justice at all, this tag is GORGEOUS!! It has a wonderful irridescence to it, and all I wanted to do was to keep picking it up and move it in the light! You also don't get a clear idea of the dimensionality of it, the playing card undulates up and down across the tag, making more highlights that glimmer and sparkle.
Awesome job buddy! :)
