September Tag

This week the challenge at Our Creative Corner is
 a Sketch Challenge hosted by our talented designer Christina Barnes -
using the sketch to create an item for a male and
use a monochromatic colour scheme if you like.

I combined this sketch with Tim Holtz's September tag.
This tag's coverd with soft metal (Creative Metal by Walnut Hollow)

I used roller, punch and piercing tool to make texture and faux-rivet.

Then colored it with Adirondack alcohol ink
and rubbed it with wire brush after it's dried.

Please check our DT's blogs for more inspiration
