Now onto the tags, this weekend I had a small window of play time and decided I wanted to do something colourful. I took inspiration from an article by the talented Kate Crane in the latest issue of The Craft Stamper for the colour choice and the technique, which is originally by Tim Holtz. Basically it is wrinkle free distress with a few drops of re-inker. I used Pickled Rasberry and Peacock Feather Distress Inks and then I used Brushed Corduroy re-inker as unfortunately I don't have the Walnut Stain one, which was the one Kate used. In addition I added some texture with the help of embossing folders, stamping (Tim Holtz and La Blanche mostly), some Prima embellies and a little Paper Whimsy image to add a vocal point to one of the tags. Here are some details still.
