Crafty Boots Challenge - Lads Tags

It has been a bit of a frantic scramble getting this done for Crafty Boots latest challenge, with the run up to Christmas but I eventually made it!  The theme this week, picked by Sandra, is 'no girls allowed, lads tags only' so a tag with a masculine theme.... good luck!

I sprayed a kraft tag with Dylusion sprays (fresh lime, cut grass and London blue) with some vintage photo distress ink round the edge.  I lightly crumpled the tag , to create some texture and smooshed some picket fence and pewter distress stains on my craft sheet and dragged the tag through it.

The car is Tim Holtz's old jalopy, and the running man is by Wendy Vecchi.  He always looks like he's missed the bus, so I stamped WAIT from an alphabet stamp on a kraft scrap (I think it's a Hero Arts set)
There are some chunky brown fibres tied through the hole in the tag, but the camera didn't pick them up.

Hope you all have a lovely Christmas and we'll see you in the New Year!
