An Altered Tag

Hello all and happy sunday!! I have the weekend off this week and seeing as it's only Andy and I at home this weekend,,(and he was sleeping due to night work) I had the whole of Saturday to play with nobody to bother me all day!! I had time to complete three pieces for the Paper Artsy challenge this week...
First up we had a new GD called Kate Yetter...I must say I love her style! Her third piece was an altered Journal page which gave me the inspiration for my tag..you can pop over and see Kate's here.

I started off with a prima tag..these are already printed with a background so a nice base.
I followed along with what Kate did adding strips of paper onto my tag and scraped on the guacamole and toffee fresco followed by gesso...(I had a panic moment as I thought I had run out of guacamole paint but phew found a new bottle in my spares lol). I used sepia ink for my drips and some beeswax which I don't think shows very well in the picture.
I used a picture cut from some Tim Holtz papers and stamped various bits and bobs and cut them out I distressed the edges and used coffee archival and peeled paint distress ink to edge it.

Thanks for stopping by...
