With a dragging movement flick your chosen colour dabber across the tag using up, down movements. Do not fill the whole tag, just random swipes. Allow to dry.
Take a darker colour distress ink, and ink over all the tag. Mist with water a cloth or paper towel, and wipe all over the tag. The distress ink will be removed from where the dabbers are, and voila! you have a wood effect.
I stamped the tree and birds over in the same colour distress ink, and the T was coloured in with the same colour dabber and highlighted with distress ink.
Fo rthe final letter E I used a gold dabber, and just stippled it all over the tag. Add more a nd build up the layers to create a fab hammered look. This is my attempt at Halloween, and the skulls come from the Mini Grungeboard. In fact all the grungeboard is covered in silver dabbers, and the skulls with black dabber. E for eeek???? lol
I have had great fun showing you these techniques, and if it has inspired you I am happy!
Have a Creative Day!
