Rustic Tag

Happy Sunday bloggers! Today I'm going to town so I am hoping to get a few new things to get the creativeness going. I love to get new scrapbook stuff even if its just one 12x12 pattern paper sheet or new stickers because it inspires me to do more and i just cant wait to use it.

Today I have a random, complex tag I just felt like creating. It took me a long time to make because i kept changing the layout and adding new stuff. hehe I like how it turned out though. I'll probably use it as a bookmark or something. This tag has a similar layout to one i found at (one of my favourite blogs) The faux metal tag that says "live life" is a neeto thingy I made. You just coat a small piece of paper in 2 or 3 layers of ep and stamp into it while it's still hot. Dont worry if you mess up the first time because you can always re-heat it.
The crumpled "parchment paper" is this paper that was light brown with a kind of texture in it. I crumpled it up and then smoothed it out again. I added ink to the high parts and then misted it with water to blend the colour. For the main backgroung piece i used very vanila and distressed it with my tea dye ink from Ranger.
I like all the metal detail. I especially love the little metal key. They are so cute and I got them at the dollar store! wow hey! Same with those great safety pins i am constantly using.
