Tagging by numbers

I started this tag yesterday evening but got stuck half way through!
I used crushed olive ink on the majority of the tag, with a little pumice stone in the middle.  I sprayed the Luscious Green spray (craftynotions) over the tag, but due to the limitations of my craft space I can't get far enough away for a nice fine spray, so it's gone more blobby than I wanted.  Next time I'll cover the place with newspaper and work further away.

I used two Tim H stamps (the large and small numbers) on the tag and the Tim text on a scrap of paper that I distressed the edges and inked with shabby shutters.  I stamped some Wendy leaves on grungepaper and one set on a paper scrap and cut out, the grungepaper ones I oversprayed with a perfect pearls/DI re-inker mix. 

The barometer face is a paperartsy stamp and the middle which is a small green plastic counter and the maya road frame, came from a goody bag. I inked, sprayed with perfect pearls and over stamped the frame with a script stamp (just for fun). It was just the right size for the stamped image.

Now I'm going to try the Sunday Stampers challenge before the football.
