Grungy 10 and Simon Says "tag" challenge!

Today's "Grungy"

Hi everyone! I really had fun with this one! There are so many Tim Holtz Techniques. Of course the distressed inks and re-inkers were used. His stamp from his slight alterations collection, on the edge gear die which has been embossed with his black embossing powder. Also the gear from his other sizzix die which has been cracked with his crackle clear paint (and then inked over with black soot)! There is also another stamped image from Tim's mini collections used too. I inked it and then distressed the edges with my scissors! I attached this stamped image with the mini-attached and used alcohol ink to get rid of the silver staple look! I used some fibers that matched the color and wa-la!

This is my entry for this week's Grungy 10 and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is "show a tag" this week! Thanks for looking, tell me what you think!
