One for the Boys at TioT's


The theme at Try it on Tuesdays  is called --'One for the Boys'.
Starting with baby boys,   right through the ages groups to the older men in your life.
Pop over for all the details and see that we have all been making.

This tag will be used on a gift for  a friend.
The base was embossed before getting the Vintage photo treatment. I found a scrap of corrugated paper and added it behind the collaged -stamped main focal piece.  All the stamps used were from Stampers Anonymous.


I was using the Grunge paste and stencils on another project, 'so waste not want not', as my gran would have said I used the remains on the bottom and corner of the tag.
As you can see Tim Holtz, products and inspiration feature with this tag, I love the way he adds textures using stencils and pastes.
It seems ages since I made this D.T. piece thank goodness for being able to do draft posts etc. Today  after taking care of the washing and ironing I will be re-united with my craft room, which will seem large after  a small cupboard in the caravan.
By coincidence this tag will be ideal for a few other challenges
Country View Challenges - Only Men Allowed
Thats Crafty Challenges - Its all about Texture
The Kraft Journal -Just for Him
Also at a Vintage Journey --No 7 Get some Texture.
I recently was a winner over there and sadly had to miss out their invitation to be on a guest winner blogpost  as I was away from home at the time.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate the comments you leave.
