Well, here's my version of the September Tim Holtz inspired tag.
I must say I love the industrial look and really enjoyed the background technique although I did not have the correct materials to reproduce it exactly as I would have liked. I don't have any black alcohol ink but do have ginger so used that, it sort of works OK. I will invest in some black as I certainly will try this background technique again.
My tip for metal embellishments to add to your stash is to pop down to the local DIY store and buy some bags of washers, very inexpensive and you get lots for the money - see the zinc washer top right.
A great challenge this month, loved it!
