Grungy Monday - Free as a Bird

The Lovely Linda has started a new challenge so that we still get our weekly fix of  Sir Tim. The first Grungy Monday  challenge is Number 10 of the 12 Tags of Christmas 2008.
For my effort I've used Broken China re-inker with a blue Perfect Pearls, through the clock/cog mask. I've then oversponged with Peeled Paint and Forrest Green DI, and turned it all green, but still with a lovely sheen.
Crackle Bird has been stamped onto grungeboard and embossed in black, then painted with Heirloom Gold PP.
The strip behind the bird has been cut with the rosette die and the butterfly tissue tape.
Bits of hardware added, then a seam binding ribbon through the top to finnish.
As The Stampman's challenge is All Things Tim this time, I'm entering my tag into that.
I really enjoyed making this, and to see other fab Timmy examples click on the link :o).
Thanks very much for looking and enjoy what's left of the weekend x
