Tiny Grungy Tags

The Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge is  all scratched up!  I saw the word grungy and I knew I wanted to distress the edges with some brown dye ink.
I love my tags and decided to use some blank tickets and just parse out bits of different stamps and create little mini tags.

I had fun pulling out the various sets to find images to place on the stamps.
Who can resist butterflies?

I have been wanting to use this pear stamp and never had the chance.

This lady also never was inked up before so I was happy to put her on this tag.

I loved giving him a rainy background and the quote is perfect with the image.

I waned to show what a difference a touch of color around the edges can make:

I think the sponged brown adds depth and creates a highlight which draws the eye to the main image.
