Going Grungy to a 'T'

I'm branching out, attempting new styles and this tag is a collage of those attempts! Let's see: I used the alcohol inks and supplies I've had collecting dust for over a year on the acrylic letter 't', a acrylic fragment to create the 'treasures tile', distressed embossed the tree, and used cracked paint under the clock image.

Not only did living on the grunge side give me inky fingers, but it also gave me a chance to use items that normally don't appear on my cards. See the paperbark birch strip running underneath the Prima?

In case it's not too obvious, my letter for this tag is 'T' as in time, tree, today, and treasures.

If you feel like trying some grunge or shabby chic techniques, Deb's (dcorder) Letters & Numbers Grunge/Shabby Chic Tag swap on Splitcoaststampers is the perfect motivation. Check out the swap HERE and join a fun group of swappers!
