Grunge time,

Hi guys,I have been following the challenge over at studio 3,each,time to see the amazing things these guys get up too.  However apart from Tim's inks distress and alchohol I only have a few other bits,and bobs,so when I saw this weeks,challenge I thought I would take the plunge.
Well this is the only piece of Grungboard I have left,so I made this tag,then stamped Tim's bird,stamp onto another piece of grunge,and cut it out giving it the 3D efefct.  The rest of the images,are all Tims,including the sentiment.  I understand you are not allowed,to go into the technique,so if you want to find out more,then you will have to buy the book. So here is mine,
I know its not as good as the others,but,at least I gave it a go,must get some more of Tims,things as really want to play some more.
I have also made this card,with one of the images,from the stampin bazzar and this image is called,catch of the day,you must admit these are just so cute,adorable images,love playing with these,if you would like any of these images,just go HERE to take a look.
I have used some of Tims,rock,candy,on the fish,he he. Just to make it look like scales think it works rather well,just love the look on that fishes,face.This time colored with pro markers,rest from my stash,flowers,from wild orchid crafts,
