Late last night I worked on this Tag and had a ball getting all dirty working with Distress Inks! I just love Creating Tags.. This tag started off as a white piece of paper. LOL I cut the Tag out with My Cricut and then went to work.. First I stamped the numbers and then Embossed them with Pirates Gold Embossing Powder from Stampendous. After that was done with my Tim Holtz Blending Tool and Distress inks I made the background. The embossing acts as a resist. I then stamps on the left side of the tag. I adhered my little stamp and metal heart charm. I cut out the Flourish using Grunge Paper on my Cricut. Then I inked the Flourish with Distress Inks. You have to work the ink into the Grunge Paper. Once done I tried something new. Instead of just spraying it with "Heirloom Gold" Perfect Pearls Mist I put a layer of Glossy Accents on and waited for that to dry. Then I sprayed it with the Perfect Pearls. I think it gave it a look like rust. It's got a shine and glimmer to it too. You can't tell in the picture. The last think I did was to ink the edges with "Walnut Stain" Distress Ink to give it a shadow. And Voila!! One Tag finished! I am really pleased how this came out. Like I said I love love creating tags!! Now I need to think of a way to Display them. Anyone got any ideas?
