#SDC269 - Tag It 'Cogs' Maria Lawton

#SDC269 -TAG IT.

I decided to go industrial this week with the fabulous cog stamp by Arwen McCullen and Bunny Boy by Kate Crane.
I started off stamping Bunny Boy onto my tag, then masked it off to stamp the cogs in the background. I then used masking fluid to mask off Bunny Boy and the background, enabling me to paint the cogs in dark brown Brusho and antiquing paint.

I peeled off the masking fluid...(so therapeutic!) then used Pebeo metallic acrylic paints to paint the background and Bunny Boy. 
I wrote my sentiment onto tiny bits of prepared card and distressed the edges and stuck them on, then used a black outliner and white gel pen to create some highlights. 
To finish off, I used some wire and metal cogs to the top and the front.
Not my normal style, but I really like this and the sentiment describes my head most days perfectly!!
