A recipe - Green, Die cuts & Cogs

This week I am playing along at a challenge blog new to me called DragonsDream Tag It On, where challenge #137 has a 'recipe of green, die cuts and cogs'.  As those of you who follow my blog will know, I have a love for the new Docrafts chronology range and couldn't wait to create another new project using these products.

I started with a Tim Holtz die cut tag and inked it with Dylusions green spray inks and then Tatter Angels marshmallow glimmer mist.  Next I inked the inside of the Xcut cogs Tri-boss embossing folder with black soot distress ink and ran the tag through the big shot.  I added Ranger bronze adirondack acrylic paint round the edges and over the top of the tag in places and then covered the whole tag with Tim Holtz rock candy crackle paint.  Next I stamped the man from one of the chronology stamps and coloured using Tim Holtz green distress inks and then added picket fence distress marker to the hair and cuffs and glossy accents to the binocular lenses, I attached the image to the tag using foam tape for depth.  Next I die cut the 9 chronology cogs in green coordination's card stock, edged with the bronze paint and sanded to distress before attaching to the tag with chronology brass brads.  I stamped 3 butterflies using a Martha Stewart punch to fill the top corner.  For the sentiment I used a mixture of Tim Holtz chit chat and my own handwritten words, inked and covered the 3 handwritten words with glossy accents.  Finally I backed the tag onto the same coordination's card stock and added 2 green ribbons to the top of the tag.
Thanks for looking!
