simon says stamp challenge blog - anything goes and simon says stamp and show - into the woods

woods tag

'dreamweaver' bare trees stencil, used to emboss 
manila tag from behind, so that the trees were raised.
the raised area was then stamped with 'tim holtz' 
wood stamp using 'stazon' timber brown.

'distress stains' shabby shutters, tumbled glass and 
shaded lilac were used across the whole tag, and the tag dried.
'distress ink' walnut stain was applied with a blending tool,
 catching the high areas, and the edges distressed.

garden twine was fixed to tag with staples, 
to hide edge of stencilled area.

using crinkle ribbon coloured with 'distress stain' shaded lilac.
