As this is going to be a quite picture heavy post, I will try to keep the text short at least ;)

The background was made by spraying various colour sprays onto an acrylic block, adding some water from a spray bottle and squishing and dapping the block onto a white card tag thus creating loads (!) of layers.

Textures were stamped with embossing ink and heat embossed, using Ranger Old Paper, black and white embossing powders.

Trinket is from finnabair's sunset rise collection. Stamps are Tim Holtz, Andy Skinner and Indigo Blu. Enjoy!

I am entering SSSS's "metal-ology" challenge with this tag.
