Dragons Dream Team Tag It On

Well after smooching around the board this morning of all the lovely crafters that take part in WOYWW.I came across Helens fab tag and then Frankies beautiful artwork
I then got myself all inky and have come up with thios tag to join in over at

Im sure this must be a weekly challenge dont take my word for it pop by Dragons Dream blog

check it out .This week anything Tim Holtz oh boy just up my street with my mojo making a surprising return since Easter im already to play so here's my tag!
Also entering this into Simon Says Stamp Challenge:This week it is anything goes!

I absolutely in loveee with Andy Skinners new rangs of stamps and have choosen to use the London set.I have first distressed the tag using distress inks .I have then cut out the main figure of a chappie and have coated him in distress crackle paint from ranger and over top added old paper distress ink.

The sentiment down the side all from the same set.Says "Gentlemen never wear brown in London"I have then stamped the london bus in distress ink barn door,and the birds,lamp post in archival black.The Buckingham palace sign stamped on paper artsy card and crackle paint added to give distress look stuck with 3d pad.
The flower is white prima i have distressed with barn door ink ,then glossed with pebo brilliant gloss medium.Added a wee crown charm to the centre.

Fibers from my stash.

Hope you like my creation,i love London lived there nfor most of my life!
