So I've had these stamps for a week now and I've been itching to use them and finally managed time yesterday to make this tag. I started with a Ranger kraft tag, layed on a Crafter's Workshop stencil (cubist), dabbed on picket fence Distress Stain in some spots (I did not add it to the whole tag), took off the stencil (cleaned it) and dried the stain. Next I rubbed on colored Distress Stains (aged mahogany, victorian velvet, worn lipstick, dusty concord), spritzed with some water and dried the tag. Layed the stencil back on sprayed with wild plum Color Wash, dried it. Stamped the tag with a background from the new set Mixed Media CMS125 (it's the 2nd stamp on the sheet) using Distress Ink aged mahogany, dried the tag. Sprayed the tag with Perfect Pearls Mists (pink gumball and grape fizz), dried it. Stamped the Creativity quote from the new set Words For Thought CMS132 and embossed it with black ep. Used the Inkssential white pen on the words finding and making. Butterflight On-The-Edge die was cut from grungepaper and then one of the butterflies trimmed off leaving the 3 you see along the bottom of the tag, inked this strip first with picket fence stain, dried, sprayed with Color Wash wild plum, dried, sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mist pink gumball, dried, the tops of the butterfly wings inked with Distress Ink aged mahogany, dried, I thought they needed "something" and added the dots and lines with the Inkssential white pen, and stapled them tot he tag using Tim's tiny attacher. I did just a bit of trimming on the butterfly I cut off the strip to even out the wings as they weren't quite right after it was cut from the strip, sprayed it with wild plum Color Wash, dried it, sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mist pink gumball, dried, detail added with the white pen, punched a hole and hung it as shown using Tim's clip and jump ring. The ribbon is from Tim's Trimmings... I dipped it in left over wild plum Color Wash and pink gumball Perfect Pearls Mists, scrunched and dried it, stamped it with the same background stamp I used on the tag using picket fence stain as my ink.. put it through the tag and both ends through one of Tim's jump rings and squashed the jump ring with my pliers. I quite like how the tag turned out!!!!!! What do you think?
