Enjoy The Journey

Hi Everyone! I trust you had a Happy New Year. I want to share a tag I made for 2015. I had a lot of fun making it.

I made my own tissue paper background by dabbing Distress Stains on white tissue paper and stamping on it when it dried using black ink. I crumpled it and then pressed it out a bit. I adhered it to a tag by sponging on a liquid glue. The numbers were cut from black glossy card stock and adhered to corrugated cardboard.

I used Antiquities embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle around the edges of the tag and on the saying. The ribbons were dyed using Distress Stains.

I hope you will have a great year ahead in 2015!
