Best friends

Challenge 26 over at Tag Along is 'Lots of Layers'.  We were asked to say how many we used. So as I went along I jotted down what I did.
 So here goes.
 [1] A simple beginning with the base tag, a little script stamping.
 [2]Andy Skinner  mask for the children , stamping inside the shape first,
 [3]  then  using the cut out piece as a mask  and Spiced Marmalade distress  to get the silhouette of the kids.
. [4] Some book paper scraps,
 [5] Tissue tape.
 [6] A bit of grunge paste through a stencil.   Wait till it dries,
 [7] Add a couple of Stampotique images, I had to stamp these again on a scrap of paper and fussy cut bits to add to the tag, so they would show up
 [8] paint images with distress markers. Vintage photo and Spiced marmalade.
[9] Out with the same colours  in distress ink pads and build up the shades.
[10] Add a couple of words- Best friends.
Well I do hope this all counts as layers,  to me layering usually involves lots of papers and bits and pieces.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I do so appreciate your comments.
