Industrial Chic

Hello! Today it is my turn to choose the recipe for this fortnight's Dragons Dream Tag It On and I have choseIndustrial Chic"- my three elements are: clockwork/cogs, vintage brown and industrial imagery with the only other rules being you need to include at least one stamped image and it all needs to be on a tag! Easy really!
So I used a cogs mask and PaperArtsy Paints (Nougat, Irish Cream and Chocolate Pudding) to make the background. I then stamped a background stamp from Tim Holtz's Steampunk set. The balloon (from his Remnants set) was stamped three times on kraft card and I cut out the balloon to create height. Then I added stamps from PaperArtsy Hot pick 1106. All images were stamped on kraft card in jet Black Archival Ink and edged in Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then added a couple of watch parts to the basket - I think I remembered everything... cogs and clockwork (check!); vintage brown (check!); Industrial Imagery (check!); stamp (check!) and tag (check!) Hurrah! 
Why not have a go yourself and if you need more inspiration please do visit the rest of the DT - they are a really talented bunch!
