Stand boldy - My take on Tim's tag for August 2014

Well I loved , loved , loved Tim's tag this month and had already been inspired by the stamping on tape part in some ATC's I created here . So now to put the whole tag's techniques into action . So for all the details and techniques from the master himself hop here. ....
Now for my tag :
All the details can be found on Tim's blog so I will not be sharing those and I followed pretty much the way he had created his tag, changing some embellishments and substituting staples for the sewing he had used..
So here are some close ups ..
I loved the gorgeous colours and textures he created on his tag and tried to create a similar feel

I love the rusty edges and added some rustiness to my embellishments too.

I am afraid no sewing machine, so I added rusty wire and some staples..well lots actually as I love them!

I love the stamping on tissue and had already played with this in some ATC's which can be found here in my trio of trouble .

And a rusty bulb to finish at the bottom..

I rusted my cogs too using distress embossing powder and love the effect it gives .

Well that's my take on Tim's tag and I shall be linking it up here .
Thanks to everyone who takes the time to stop by I am trying to play catch up slowly but life has other ideas!
