Today's challenge was to use an "Artsy" stamp. The "Umbrella Man" has been in my stash a loooooong time and I don't think I've ever used him! So…he makes his debut on this Distressed Tag.
I wanted the background to be a little "dark and rainy" so I started with Pumice Stone, Old Paper and Frayed Burlap Distress Stains on a Craft Mat. Spritzed with Water and swiped the tag through a couple of times.
I used Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and a Blending Tool through the TH Clockwork Stencil.
I went back in to the corner with the Clockworks stencil. The Idea-Ology Mini Corner finished off the bottom corner of the tag.
The Artsy Umbrella Man was stamped in Versamark Ink and embossed with Black Embossing Powder.
The Ticket Stamp was stamped in Black Memento Ink.
I used the TH Gadget Gears Die to cut out some Chipboard and then sponged Frayed Burlap Ink on top of it. After cuttting it in half, I adhered it to the card front using Crystal Effects. Idea-ology gears were adhered on top using Crystal Effects.
A smaller Gadget Gear was cut, inked and attached on the upper edge of the tag. Idea-Ology Gears were attached using Crystal Effects. The Word Band was attached using a Paper Piercer and Brads. The Naturals Black and Cream Trimmings Ribbon was cut and then pulled apart to fray it a little before looping through the hole in the tag.
The tag was finished off with a Black Distress Marker and the Spritzer Tool.
