2012 Tag your it!

HAPPY 2012 EVERYONE !!!

Last night well before the “bells” I toddled up the garden to my shed, dug out the distress inks and Stain (I only have one lol) Β and made a few tags.. I love the different colour variations you get…

I would like to build up my distress stain collection this year and also gather the remaining distress inks that I dont have… Who doesnt like getting the inks out now and again πŸ˜‰

This is the first tag I made…

Using Wild Honey, gathered twigs, frayed burlap and victorian velvet distress ink, the stamps are Papermania Urban collection

and then using the same ink combination I made the second tag and it looks completely different!

Then I thought why not try a purple and green combo…

Distress inks used here were shabby shutters, seedless preserves, Gathered Twigs and Crushed Olive distress stain

and then just a green combo…

Other supplies used for making the tags were :-

  • Tonic Studio Butterfly Punch
  • Rhinestones from Wild Orchid Crafts and Basic Grey
  • Sentiments/words just typed up on computer and printed out, chopped down and edged in distress stain
  • Stampin Up Butterfly Emboslit
  • Ranger Heat Gun
  • Glossy Accents
  • Papermania Urban Stamp Set
  • Claudine Hellmuth Multi Matte Medium
  • Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive

Thanks so much for popping in πŸ™‚
