Distress Tag & more New Stamps!

Today I wanted to use some of the new stamps that I have just loaded onto the website , and make a little something for you to look at. I started off using a glossy postcard from Judikins, but it was a mess and ended up in the bin! So I took a glossy tag I had , and ended up with a new technique, well certainly to me!
I used broken china and faded jeans and using the distress foam pads went over the tag. I spritzed it, and then wiped the actual inkpad over the wet tag. This is similar to the crumpled effect of Mr Holtz's.
I then heat dried the tag. It was fab! I then embossed the Time girl with Holographic powder and heated for different lengths of time, so you get the different colours. Sadly when I did this the tag colours melted together and the effect was mostly lost. I was more than disappointed, but I rectified it with the new smudge background( already planned ) and some Prima flowers and a little tag stamped on an old dictionary page from a dictionary I keep by my desk all the time. It has proved invaluable!



For those of you who like blog candy (and who doesn't?) I have some for the month of June! All you have to do is comment on the post above (kept there till Saturday June 20th), and post it on your blog about the giveaway.
