Under Lock & Key

I had a lovely time At Hulme Hall, Port Sunlight yesterday. It was lovely to meet so many of my crafting friends. We kept bumping into one another as we went around the stands and had a chance to compare purchases. I was tired this morning though after all the walking. And I had to help out in the cattery this morning so didn't get a chance to play with my new stuff until this evening. I thought I would get my entry done for the TIO challenge before getting too engrossed with cutting and mounting stamps!
My tag this time is made using stamps from graphicus. I have been waiting for a chance to use this set. My tag has been coloured with distress inks in victorian velvet, milled lavender, and dustry concord. I have over stamped with the text from the same plate using milled lavender, then second stamped the lock using dustry concord. My key and lock have been stamped onto grungepaper using black archival ink and then coloured with black soot DI. I have added some purple gems to the fob of the key. The strands of wool are from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by.
