I made this tag for the Make It Take It Challenge over at the craft stamper. The colours also fit in with the Unity Be Inspired Challenge. I love the colours of all of. the leaves on the trees right now so I wanted to keep with an autumn theme. I was going for a grungy, distressed look to match the meaning of the sentiment. So I decided to make another tag. I cut this one out of cardboard. I used some gesso over the card then applied my distress inks. Then I peeled the edges of the cardboard to reveal the corrugated look underneath. Next I heat embossed the flower on top with white embossing powder. Then I stamped my sentiment using the same 3 inks on the tag and cut it up and glued the words on separately. Finally I took some ribbon and coloured them with my distress inks to coordinate with the tag. This is something a little different for me as I usually go with a much cleaner look. I really do like the way it turned out though.
