I used manila tags that I bought AGES ago thinking I could keep up with the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas, but I couldn't! Vintage is SO out of my comfort zone, it freaks me out...literally freaks me out!!!! LOL I stamped the image on the tag, then used distress inks (2 or 3 colours) to smudge around the image. Then I stamped on the background image (either snowflakes or leaves), distressed the edges with my TH distresser tool, and then inked them. I coloured the images and the ribbon with my TH distress inks. THEN I spritzed them with some pearly spray that my friend had (I told you - I used EVERYTHING of hers except the tags! LOL) These look sooooo much nicer in person, they are shimmery! VERY cool!!!!
I have them up for sale in my Etsy shop IF you are interested!!!!
Here are the tags I made:
ADDICTED TO STAMPS challenge which is Tags (& you have to use a stamp, which I did!),
CRAFTY EMBELLIES which is Vintage Shabby Chic with altered art (I THINK this fits there),
Robyn's Fetish which is Vintage,
STAMPING SENSATIONS which is Traditional Christmas,
the CRAFTY PAD which is Christmas,
CRAZY4CHALLENGES which is Tags,
Di's Digi Downloads which is Autumn colours (entering the orange and red tags here!).
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you love my tags!!!! I know I do!!!!
