Studio L3 - Compendium of Curiosities II Challenge - Week 2

Hello Bloggers/Friends!!

Here we are at week two of the lovely Linda Ledbetter's challenge.  This week the technique we're using is Faux Patina and all the instructions can be found on page 58 of Tims latest book.  Linda's friend Angie has very kindly donated a messenger bag signed by the man himself, how generous is that??

I've made a tag following all the instructions and have added a few of my own design bits, ideally I would have called this piece Time Flies, but couldn't find my stamp, hence enjoy the journey!!!  I embossed my card stock after applying the inks then added the gear & clock, finally stamped the birds & attached to a tag which I distressed with my inks.........there you have it! Hopefully I've made the challenge just in time :D  (sorry about the poor picture quality, hopefully if you click on pic it may appear brighter)
Hope you approve of my tag?  Thanks for looking and as always......

Happy Crafting
