SAME - love tag/layout

So for this weeks SAME I had a hard time coming up with something to do... mind you it isn't because i don't have any thing to do but the fact that i am working on so many things that are 'top secret'. Okay not really top secret but reveals for the design team.
 So i decided to just do a tag this week. i started out with tracing an existing #8 tag (the size Tim uses!) and going from there and here is a pic of all other supplies that i had on my table.  I used these three distress inks as well as walnut stain. So the first step was to ink my stamp with the tattered rose and then stamp onto my tag followed by clear Zing and then heated up. I then used a mixture of frayed burlap, broken china, rusty hinge and tattered rose onto the tag being sure to wipe the embossed areas after each application. on the right is a pic of what it looked like when finished this step.
then it was time to add a few embellishments to the tag. i first attached the film strip with the tiny attacher and cut and glued a photo into the frame. oh and before it forget, do you see that piece of pink paper and small piece of grunge board.. well i glued them together at the start of this whole process in order to give them a chance to dry a bit. so then it was time to add a stamp on the top and bottom which i stamped with rusty hinge and then placed items on the tag until i was satisfied with how it looked. here is a photo of the final product. i am currently working on a layout to use this tag on. I hope you come back to see what i have done with it.
so until the next time my friends...

edit ...
PS.. here is the finished layout!!
