Just By Being


I started the background on this #5 manilla tag when I was working on the dandelion atc.  I cleaned up left over Distress Stain by laying this tag in it.  I then used just one part of the new Garden Delights oval stamp to stamp all over the tag with Distress Ink peeled paint (ink, stamp, ink, stamp, etc. and sometimes stamping the second generation for some lighter stampings).  Stamped the saying with Versarmark ink and embossed with detail black powder.  Inked the edges of the tag with Distress Stain broken china and then added snow cap Paint Dabber, dried it, and then added a bit more snow cap right on the edges for a deeper white (the first time the paint takes on some color from the Distress ink).  Cut the flowers from Kraft Core Distress Core'dinations using Tim's Sizzix Alterations die tattered florals, embossed them with the damask embossing folder, sanded the high spots, added a little snow cap paint around the edges, stacked them, pierced them with an awl, added the Ideology foliage flowers and brad and then dabbed some snow cap paint on them.  Cut the mini flourish (Tim's sizzix movers and shapers) from grungepaper, painted with snow cap dabber, dried, inked a bit with Distress peeled paint.  Ribbon (Tim's Ideology trimmings) is colored with Distress Stains.
