Eroded Metal Tag from Creative Chemistry 102 with Tim - 2 posts in one day!

If you haven't already enrolled in the Creative Chemistry 102 classes with Tim, you should really, really think about it!
I can't tell you how to do this technique, but HE can!
This is my take on his Eroded Metal .....  is this cool, or WHAT???
Who said a small tag has to REMAIN small???

This starts out as a #5 Manila Tag, but it gets layered and layered to become a larger and more defined tag. I used the Antique Bronze here, and the angled shot shows the metallic shine.
I used the Eroded Metal Technique, embossed it, and sanded it down to reveal layers underneath.
And thank you Paula Cheney for the idea with the Linen Ribbon in stretching it apart.
This is the #8 Manila Tag and Tarnished Brass I did as well...still thinking about what to do with it, but you'll be the first to know, or see.

So check out CC102 and "Get your Tim on!"
