Created by Hand Tuesday challenge Altered

The challenge today at Created by Hand was to alter something.
Decided to alter a tag which I had lying around anyway. First primed it with gesso, then painted in copper acrylic. Collaged over it, spunged adirondac inks over the collage to tone the coloures together and finally embellished with some fibres.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
