Distressed Tag

So I have been on a tag making streak lately. Today I created 2 and yesterday I made 2 aswell. Here is my favourite so far. So I just adore the new glimmer mists I bought! I used both caramel apple and the tattered leather. I gave the tag a bit of colour then clear embossed the stamp from my Christina Renee set. I continued to add a couple more dark layers overtop to make the image pop.
To make the grungeboard wing I first cut out the shape from an embossed but not die-cut sheet. I actually didnt ink it at all but instead sprayed it with several layers of the tattered leather glimmer mist. I added a touch of white paint and blended it while it was still wet. It came out alot more charcoal coloured rather than brown but I really love the overall appearance. It is hard to tell but alot of the glitter stuck to the low spots on the grunge piece. Very cool!
The tiny typed numbers were cut off of one of those magazine subscription cards. I stamped the Tim Holtz ticket and inked it.
