It's Grungy Monday (on a Wednesday)

I'm just a couple days late. Busy getting ready for quilt retreat, tomorrow. Yeah!!!! and I needed a tag for my gift exchange bag so I thought I'd try out the Grungy Monday challenge from Linda over at Studio L3 which happens to be a lovely tag technique from our beloved Tim Holtz way back from 2008. I used some homemade misters with peeled paint and broken china reinkers and a swirly mini mask. Stamps from Club Scrap's Textiles and Notions kit. Rummaged around in my sewing box for a couple of snaps and rick rack for the finishing touches. You all have a great week end, I'm off to sew!
