Grungy Monday #12/ Show Us Some Metal

I had the afternoon off today, so got busy and did another two-fer for the challenge on Linda's blog and Simon Says Stamp and Show blog. We had to use Tim's April 2008 technique challenge for Grungy Monday and Show Some Metal for SSSS. I used anotehr harlequin background stamp I had on some very bright designer paper with roses on it and I did use the Expresso paint on it. For my metal flowers, I used the metal tape in the plumbing row at walmart added to cardstock and die cut Tim's tattered flowers and the leaves and butterflies are his movers and shapers minis. I then ran them through Vincenzo, my vagabond in various embossing folders and then inked them up with alcohol inks in sevral colors. Bent and formed them, layered them up and added them to the tag. It still needed something, so I added the tissue tape and smeared some Walnut Stain distress ink onto it. Added the ribbon and there you have it!
