SSSS - Anything Tim Holtz Inspired (2)

After the tag I did yesterday, I had some bits left over that I originally rejected - or at least didn't fit the theme I ended up with. So tonight I made another tag. Not sure if I can enter the SSSS challenge twice, but I hope it's ok!

This time, I used a square tag, inked with brushed corduroy and rusty hinge, die cut the 'hanging sign' on grunge paper and inked them - I think I used brushed corduroy again.  For the hangy bit of the die cut I distress embossed it with vintage photo EP.

I used the Tim barbed wire mask on the tag before assembling with some idea-ology bits and a grungeboard skull which I covered with inka gold "gloop" to use Lin and Leandra's term - in haematite - which is a lovely sort of steel blue-grey colour. I used some black rainbow drops for eyes.

Great piece, Helen! Yes, you can enter twice, but your name will only be thrown in for the prize once. Love that steel blue color of the gloop. That skull goes great with that! Your background is awesome!
Thanks for joining the SSSS challenge again!
