Playtime Tag

Hi everyone!

      I am back with a tag....I know I make a lot of them but I really want to share this one. I was really pleased with it even though it has some mistakes. I won't say where they are though ;o) Just like the quote I used "Life doesn't have to be perfect!"....well, neither do tags!

     This was a playtime tag - not intended for anything, just some messing around time. I started with some Antique Linen DP through a harlequin stencil and then dabbing some Peeled Paint and Frayed Burlap DI over the tag.

  Then I stamped some butterflies with Frayed Burlap DP and a script stamp with Antique Linen DP.

     Then of course I had to use my favourite script stamp in Potting Soil Archival ink.

     The tag got thoroughly soaked with water and then dabbed dry with paper towel which really bought the Antique Linen DP back to life and toned down the colours from the Distress inks.

    The quote was stamped with Potting Soil Archival ink and the torn edges were inked with Gathered Twigs DI

   Two white roses were dabbed with Gathered Twigs DI and then spritzed with water.


The ivy die cut was dabbed with Gathered Twigs DI and the speckled effect was done with a spritzer and distress marker (not the new TH one!)

   ........a ribbon dyed with Peeled Paint DS completes the tag....

 Hope you like it - Thanks so much for being here!
