Tim x 10 Grand Give-A-Way Challenge: Day Two

Yep, that prize is getting closer to being in someones crafty space. Over at Stampin' Dymonz Creative Space the challenge for day two is to make a tag using a masking technique. Today's theme is "Busy Bees" and your design must incorporate bees in the layout. The tag must also have some type of sheen/shimmer.
Well, I'm all out of "bee" items. The one piece of craftyness stash which have bees on it has gone walkies. So I substituted a quote "To Be Or Not To Be" stamp. Close.
The Tag itself was masked off around the outside with post-it notes, and using distress inks, I sponged mustard seed, rusty hinge, barndoor and spiced marmalade in the "hole". {Original idea from Craft Stamper (October Issue - Designer Joanne Wardle)} The stamp is a friends I borrowed, this was stamped on the tag with forest moss DI. The little quote is from a set from Cherry Pie, Plate 20, writers.
The swirl has been created by masking the tag with the offcut from a swirl die cut and sprayed with copper glimmer mist.
All finished off with some twine matching the colours of inks used.
