I messed up about 6 tags before I got one where I was happy with the painty embossing stuff, so that 's why I'm actually having a Grungy Friday.
After the embossing bit, using one of the first stamps I ever bought (that lovely Stampers Anonymous tree), I coloured my tag with Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky and Broken China Distress Stains and stamped the birds from the Anthology set by Tim using Archival Ink so it would stay put over the embossing. The stamped words are from the Stuff to Say set.
To finish off my tag I used some Salvage Stickers, mini photo film, and tiny attacher staples to fix this to the tag. I made a tissue tape ruffle and wound some twine around this before attaching an Ideology button.
