tag you're it!

Hello everyone, chuckling to myself. Do you ever get stumped what  to call your post. I do sometimes hence the silly title tonight. Well now I've got you  here I show you the tag I made to enter two challenges.

The first is Anything Vintage at that's Crafty go have a look at what their design team up with, lots of inspiration and the other is the Artist trading Post again with great inspiration from their DT.

I took a #10 tag and spray it with seedless grape tattered rose and wild honey spray stain from Ranger and using my stencil wiped off some off the stain ( I first saw this done by Dyan Reavery on you tube)

I then used the same stencil and sprayed tea stain through randomly across the the tag.

I used a photo from lost relatives  which I stuck on some fabric that had been distressed with weathered wood distress ink. 

I then added crackle paste through a baroque stencil in places and once that was dry sprayed with worn leather Colorbloom and then highlighted with treasure gold in white fire. 

I sprayed some roses in the worn leather and added them as well as some lace and a butterfly to finish

The finished tag with my stamped and white heat embossed sentiment which is by Douglas Horton

Thanks for stopping by take care and I'll see you soon
