My Mojo likes Grunge

I made this tag for the challenge at Studio L3, Grungy Monday   called Texture Fades and Distress,  I followed the Tim Holtz video to emboss the ink right into my tag.  The image is Graphics 45 Once Upon a Springtime.  I used Stickles all over the flowers and leaves.  The pretty pearl brads are from Pizzazz Aplenty.  I used Ranger Distress Inks in my Tim Holtz Texture fades Patchwork embossing folder.   Then finished it off with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist in Coffee Bean and Wheatfields. This is my first tag and first grunge piece.  Grunge is hard for me, I am too much of a perfectionist.  It really bothers me if I glue something down slightly askew, so I really had to let go with this piece.  Easier said than done, I still wanted to control exactly how those inks landed, ha ha.  It was fun, I think my Mojo enjoyed being let go a bit.
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
