While stampin’ with my buds this past weekend, I taught them how to make the following tag. Actually, this is the tag we made less the embellishments. I had to wait until I got home to dress it up. I forgot to take a few things with me in my mad dash to get to the airport.

Dallas Tag

The floral flair was stamped with Creative Memories Ginger paint (at least I think that is what is was), and the Scattered Straw and Faded Jeans Distress Ink were worked onto the tag, wiping away the excess from the flairs. The middle flower image was stamped in Vintage Photo. The sentiment and side borders were stamped in Archival Jet Black. Just for fun, the edges were distressed and then sponged with the Vintage Photo. For the added embellishments, I painted two pieces of Grunge Board with Faded Jeans Distress Crackle Paint, leaving some of the Grunge Exposed, and then highlighted both with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The ribbon is attached to a Trinket Pin and tied off in a bow.
