September Layers!

Having a little fun with Tim's September 2013 Tag - Layers! Mostly followed Tim's guidelines, so pop on over there for all the details!
I did have to improvise, as I do not have Tim's tag stencils at the moment, so used a mix of what I had on hand.
The stains I used were, Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo and same color choice for ink pads. For the pen nib, I inked over that with Black Archival and clear embossed with specks of UTEE Gold. I love embossing metal. This will also go for a visit at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, "Embossed." I love the embossed look from the modeling paste through the stencil!

I can't believe it is already Thursday, but I guess that is what happens when you go off for awhile! Hope you are having a great week and thank you for visiting me today!

Good to see your back, hope your trip to daughters was great.
This tag is really cool! It is a little more subtle in color and makes the stamped image pop.
Good Job!!

I like that background you created Terry - wonderful tag.
Thank you for saying I can enter at AO, something I haven't done so far. I might need to check with Laura at That's Crafty, just in case there are "rules" against me entering challenges.
Thanks.
Wishes
Lynne
