Graphic 45 tag

The large tag is 4" x 8" with a #8 tag for the pocket...these are the new images from Graphic 45...I've been admiring this style on Pinterest and decided I should try to stretch myself and do something pretty and not grungy...the tags were colored with Distress Stains...after taking my Tim Holtz class at Queen's Ink last month I have become addicted to using the stains for coloring large areas...

Tim Holtz Elongated Tag

This is the result of liking a part of a tag but not the other parts so I tore the part off that I didn't like and attached it to another tag but decided to elongated the tag so here is the result...I added a die cut sheet metal car and arrow, inked with Archival Ink and stamped into it when wet...it removed the ink and left the images/words...stamped all over the place with verses in various inks and PearlEx, added the string and gears, the embellishment including Tim's ribbon dyed with Distress Stains then fringed, and whatever...
