Grungy Monday #15

Yay, it's weekend; well for some of us it's a workday, but hey, I don't mind....... Hope you are all well and have some crafty fun planned.
Over at Studio L3 it's time to visit 2007 in the Tim time machine for a closer look at one of my FAVOURITE techniques- Rusty enamel.

Using weathered wood Distress ink and vintage photo I enamelled the main tag. I added the embossed and stamped base section to this.
Umbrella man was die cut out of thin chipboard , inked with vintage photo and stamped . I then used 3d glaze to highlight and added some vintage watch bits to him while wet.
The cogs and gears are painted with modern masters bronze metal reactive paint before adding as seen.
I like the way this tag turned out, hope you do too!
Have a wonderful wonderful weekend.........
