Bring your TAG ON!!!

 

OK FOLKS........are you ready to get you Tag ON????

This week at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog.......IT'S ALL ABOUT THE TAG!!

I don't know about you but I love creating tags!! It is such a great way to let those creative juices flow!!


My tag has a bit of a vintage flair to it...I inked my Silhouette Spray stamp with Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint Distress ink...spritzed the inked stamp with water, then stamped on my  tag and paper, giving the image a "watercolor" look. Do you see the Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint??? The tag was accented with a Tim Holtz Corner.









The Maya Road flourish was painted with Gesso, embossed using the Collage/Notebook Texture Fade, the high points sanded then inked with Faded Jeans. If you notice....there is Distress Ink everywhere....used in both the pad and liquid form.

Do you see it....do you??? My GrungePaper Rose!!! If you would like to know how to make this little ditty....check out my tutorial
So....peeps!!! get your TAG ON....and link you creation to the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog......can't wait to see!!!

Would it be vain to brag on myself for a moment!!! You see a life long dream of mine has been to be published in ANY Stampington Magazine....I know I was published in the Stampers Sampler....greedy as I may be, I WANTED MORE!! Sooo....when I got back from my Thanksgiving Mini Vaca....there it was...... a YOU'VE BEEN PUBLISHED magazine ....I almost cried!! Their magazines are JUST THE BEST and it is TRULY AND HONOR to be published in one of their magazines!!!

You've put such work into your tag and it came out so great! Loving all the watercolour effect, grung rose and crackled embossing. Every bit as fab as Tim's tags.
