A Masculine Birthday!

A big hello to all of you and hope you are doing well! It will shortly be my Grandson's Birthday and so I thought a fun masculine tag was in order!
Steampunk, Paperboy and Secretary Pool all stamps from Artistic Outpost were stamped in Black Archival directly to the tag. Each of the four areas were masked off and then inked over with Tumbled Glass and then I flicked on some water.
Next with the masking still over the stamped areas, I stamped the text from Paperboy using Dove Grey from Stazon, shaded the edges with Vintage Photo and using a toothbrush flicked on some Vintage Photo Stain.  Distressed the edges and stained the tie. No metal as this will be going on an airplane and no need to be screened! Keeping it simple!
Thank you for visiting me today and enjoy the day!
