CC3 Challenge #2 - Distress Glitter Technique

I'm so happy that it's time for the 2nd Compendium of Curiosities 3 challenge.  This time we are using Tim's Distress Glitter Technique that is found on page 56 of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol #3.  I made a tag for my project - using the Distress Glitter Technique on an Art Parts leaf.  I used Peeled Paint Distress Glitter as it is the only one I have at the present. (but more are winging their way to me at this very moment!)
Let me show you all of the other techniques I used on this tag in addition to the Distress Glitter.  I started with a manilla tag from Ranger that I sponged with Wild Honey and Peeled Paint Distress Inks. Then I stamped the background with Wendy Vecchi's Ornate Dots with Archival Cornflower Blue ink.
I sponged the numbers  1 - 2 - 3 -4 - 5 from the Cargo Stencil along the top

and 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 0 along the bottom with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. (you can just barely see it!)  Then I flicked water over the tag to make some water spots.
I inked the Art Parts Flower with Archival Orange Blossom ink, stamped it with the Ornate Dots using Cornflower blue - and then covered it with Distress Crackle Paint Clear Rock Candy.  After it dried I sponged over it with Orange Blossom Ink and added the Wendy Vecchi Blossom Bucket Gold Berry Flower Centers
I also stenciled the dots from the Splatters stencil along 2 edges with Cornflower Blue ink.  I die cut the Frameworks Border Honeycomb die out of Grunge Paper and inked it with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and then brushed the Archival Orange Blossom over it just a tad.  I applied several Remnant Rubs/Botanicals
I inked a metal sprocket gear with Orange Blossom Ink, adhered it around the circle on the tag and looped a piece of Linen Ribbon through the hole, tying it in a double knot and pulling the ends of the ribbon open.  I layered my tag to a piece of black cardstock.
I love my tag!
Now I can't wait for challenge #3!! Challenge #2 ends on May 23rd.
