Creativity Is Not in the Finding

This tag is so "me."

  
It's a #8 Manila Tag with layer upon layer of Distress Inks. Then I spritzed water over the Bubble Stencil and blotted to remove some color.

 
Add some Tissue Tapes and a few Stamps to the base.


 
I cut the Lattice out of watercolor paper and painted it with Brushed Pewter and Tarnished Brass Distress Paint.
 
The Bird and Number Brads have Fresco paints added to them. The Arrow is in it's natural state.

 
The white Sharpie pen marks are the last to be added.
 
I like to layer onto black chipboard, punch a hole and add some Distress Ink died Crinkle Ribbon.

Give it a go!
