I just realized I forgot to post my take on the Magazine Monday Challenge! If you’re looking for elegant, you want yesterday’s post HERE. Today, it’s distress and vintage again. (If you like Tags, Distress and Vintage, you might like this, this, this, or maybe even this.) 😉
- Put Distress Stains onto a Craft Mat – Tea Dye, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain.
- Swipe a Manila Tag through the colors and Heat Set.
- Drip water onto the Tag and Dry.
- Use Walnut Stain Distress Ink through the Splatters Layering Stencil.
- Use Frayed Burlap Distress Ink through the Burlap Layering Stencil in a couple of places on the tag.
- Use Tim Holtz’s “Artist” stamp from the Classics #4 Stamp Set. Swipe Black Archival Ink across the surface of the stamp and press in different places on the tag to create a subtle background.
- Stamp the clock from the Mini Classics Stamp Set in Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
- Stamp the vertical butterflies from the Papillon Stamp Set in Black Archival Ink.
- Using a Blending Tool, bring Black Soot Distress Ink onto the tag to draw your eye to the center of the tag.
- Attach Film Strip using the Tiny Attacher.
- Ink a Blending Tool in Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and then drag across Stampin’ Up! Canvas Ribbon. Wrap ribbon around card and through an Idea-Ology Buckle. Attach the buckle with a brad and fray the edge a little.
- Dye Crinkle Ribbon with Tea Dye, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Distress Stains.
- Attach a kraft tag to finish the back of the manila tag.
- Pull the ribbon through the hole in the tag.
- Attach a Bronze Trinket Pin to the ribbon.
- Attach a Muse Token to the Trinket Pin with a Jump Ring.
I created the backgrounds for both of these tags at the same time. (See the tutorial HERE.) They look very different but, while the inks are out, it’s easy to do shabby, grunge, distress, vintage, etc. Which is your favorite?
