Off the Wall

Evening!! A late one from me, have been falling asleep on the sofa on and off all evening...

I had some free time today, and played with a tag (as you do!) and the fab fab fab Grunge Paste from those clever Paperartsy people...

 Painted the tag with London Bus Fresco paint and applied the grunge paste through the brick wall stencil (crafters workshop)
Further grunged up the edges of the tag with walnut stain distress ink, and stamped the vine from Wendy Vecchi over the tag. Think it may have shown up more in archival rather than distress ink. (but I don't have green archival.... it's on the list for Ally Pally!)

Stamped Wendy's running man (I always think he's running for a bus) on kraft card and cut out, glued to tag.

The sentiment is also one of Wendy's, stamped on the same kraft card, and cut up and stuck on, then I scribbled round the edges with a black gelly pen.
Also "finished" (I think!) the time tag that was on my WOYWW desk yesterday. Used the leftover die cut weathered clock (left from the Suzz shaving foam card the other day) and one of Tim's stamps.  The "time" is part of a stamp from one of Paperartsy's Clocks series.

You find the greatest stencils, and that grunge paste sounds like something I would love. Of course, I haven't seen it here, so it may take awhile to get to my part of the country.

BTW, I liked both tags!!
