Steampunk Tags.

A tramp, a gentleman, a poet, a dreamer, a lonely fellow,
always hopeful of romance and adventure.
” – Charlie Chaplin.

“It is said that using three of something adds more interest and power whether it is a conversation, art or numbers.”Jennie Atkinson
I used three tags in different sizes, three medium sized gears, 3 small gears, 3 different colors, 3 reinforcement rings, etc.
My Inspiration was “Live the dream” by Jennie Atkinson,

My inspiration for this tag was
My take, on Tims tag January 2013 by Inkypinky Craft.

I used the metal gears to dry emboss the background.

“Dry Embossing – Also called “relief embossing”, is done by tracing a stencil with a stylus in order to create a raised pattern.” – The Paper Mill Store.

I attach the small misters to the bottles with elastics.
Caution: When working with alcohol, make sure you are in a well ventilated area.
