Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 - May

I'm just squeaking in before the deadline for Tim's May 12 tags of 2016.  I missed last month and didn't want to miss it again.  
So here is Tim's tag and you'll find all his instructions here.
And here is my version.  I first adhered a couple of strips of Tissue Tape - Symphony and Commute and then stamped images from Tim's Dapper set using Archival Jet Black Ink.  I then applied WV White Embossing Paste through Tim's Gears Mini Stencil and let it dry.  Then I sprayed Ranger Distress Peeled Paint and Broken China Spray Stains onto the tag.  I wiped off the excess and you can see how the Paste and the Tissue Tape resisted the stain.
Instead of making tattered florals -  because of the masculine theme and the gears stencil that I used -  I made tattered gears!  I die cut Tim's Thinlits Gearhead dies out of Paperstash/Crowded Attic.  Then I lightly sprayed the pieces with Peeled Paint and Broken China Distress Spray Stains.  Then I splattered some Antiqued Bronze Distress Stain on to them (the pump on the bronze stain got clogged so I had to dip a brush into it and splatter instead of spraying).  Then I layered different gear sizes together and attached them with a Mini Fastener/Screwdriver slot brad.  I scrunched up the top layers so they were like gear flowers (!)
I colored a piece of Natural Linen Ribbon from Funkie Junkie with the same Distress Spray Stains and sewed it to the tag.  I added a Vial Label with Remnant Rubs/Life Quotes.
  Here's a close up of one of the gear "flowers' so you can see how it's scrunched up
So I'm happy to have been able to get my May Tag done - 
and I'm pleased with how it came out - Win -Win!! (I love when that happens!)
