Distress Tags!

Happy Friday, Everyone! I was up and at 'em early this morning and couldn't stop thinking about the new Distress Inks I got at Judy's Scrappin' and Stampin'. I created these three tags using a few simple techniques I saw at Two Peas in a Bucket. For the blue tag, I inked up the tag using Broken China. Next, I used the Embossing Ink to ink up my crackle background stamp from Stamp Camp. Once that was inky, I sprayed it with water and stamped the tag, dried it with my heat tool and got that nice crackled look. I think it almost looks like water! I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts) and the text background (Dimensions) on the Prima using Vintage Photo. I cut the stem and leaves from a brown scrap and added cool dew drops made by my friend Lindsay, of Lindsay's Stamp Stuff! She has a great tutorial video on her blog. Click HERE to see her video and make your own dew drops. The second tag was made by inking up the tag with Rusty Hinge, Barn Door, and Peeled Paint Distress Inks. Next, either spray or splash water drops onto the tag and dry with heat tool. I colored the flowers with Barn Door and Peeled Paint and attached a bronze brad for the center. I cut a stem and leaves from scraps, stamped the sentiment in the corner with Vintage Photo and added those fun dew drops to finish it off. The leaf was attached with pop dots for dimension. The third tag was made with a combination of Spun Sugar, Bundled Sage and Pumice Stone inks. I colored the flower with Tattered Rose and stamped the text background on it with Vintage Photo, as well as the sentiment (Hero Arts). I added the button center and Prima leaf along with more of the dew drops for embellishments. These were really fun to make and they were not difficult! -My kind of work! LOL Anyway, I would love your comments-they make my day!!! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Distressing! ;)
