Good morning crafty friends and welcome to another mid-way point of the two week challenge at PDE Linky Party. You have one week left to show us your projects of either a tag or adding a tag to your creation. Tags come in all shapes and sizes and I look forward to seeing yours.
The tag I have to show you is a new to me technique that I tried. In April at Scrapfest I bought myself some Tim Holtz mini distress inks and have been wanting to try them out. I started with a white tag and inked it up with Christmas colours. This process was messy and I just played with the ink and water until I got a look I liked. I then let it dry and embossed the stamps, added the poinsettia die and the ribbons. Voila, one tag done for a gift :)
A closer look at the embossing and die cut detail:
Tag ~ Recollections (3" x 6")
