Getting Inky Tag

Do you love to play with your stencils, stamps, distress inks?  This in one of those great vintage tags that was made just by sitting down and playing (no special idea in mind).   Grab your supplies and give it a try.  Remember, there are no set rules in crafting and every time your project will turn into an amazing project.

Getting Inking Tag

This fantastic tag was created by Linda Coughlin from The Funkie Junkie blog.  First of all Linda just dove right in and started stamping, embossing, and sponging.   She took some background stamps and used jet black ink and a bit of clear embossing.  Next she used her distressed inks with just a few pumps of water from a mister bottle to make the ink react.

 Linda used the Tim Holtz Latticework stencil, along with Vintage Photo distress ink and finished off with a few black doodle lines around the edges.  For the focal image she used one of the images from Whimsical Melange and added a piece of left over rusty wire and used it as a backdrop for her butterflies.  What a fantasic tag.  Thank You Linda for sharing this wonderful project.

Thank You for stopping by.  Enjoy your fun filled crafting day!
