This is the second tag I made out of my mistakes.
I gessoed the back and then layered on Distress Inks. I ran it through the Sizzix in the French Script embossing folder. I used Vintage Photo and Black Soot Distress Inks on the raised areas. I felt the background needed more, so I added Perfect Pearls to make it pop. Next I cut the Eiffel Tower out and used Sticky Embossing Powder to get the Martha Stewart glitter to stick.
I have no idea where the travels tag came from, it has been in my stash forever. The ornate plate and rub ons are both Tim Holtz. The ribbon is old sari ribbon that was hand dyed.
I am entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. This week they are showcasing tags. I am also entering it into the Stampotique Desginer Challenge highlighting textured backgrounds. I would say this tag is no longer a mistake!
