Dragonsdream Tag It On Challenge - Distressing

I have used two stamps on this tag, a small flourish by Clarity and the large rose corner by The StampMan.

On pinky beige card I stamped the rose corner in Walnut Stain DI and then stamped the flourishes with Tattered Rose DI and versamark and embossed in clear. I then painted the rose with DI reinkers and sponged inks onto the tag to tone. The edges of the tag were very roughly embossed with gold ep. I then took a deep breath and sprayed the whole tag with Irridescent Gold Glimmer mist and watched the colours bleed.

I am very pleased with the result although you cannot see from the picture the lovely sheen it has from the glimmer mist.

Thank you for paying me a visit and all comments are appreciated.


  1. Janet your tag is gorgeous, love the colours an the vintage look you've achieved. I had to chuckle at taking a deep breath before letting the colours bleed, I always have to brace myself for it lol
