Grunge or Shabby Tag Swap


This is my edition to the swap, I chose letter b for bloom :) I like my "bloom" stamp a lot! I have been wanting to do shadow stamping and this stamp is used for it so often I started with it and went from there! I stamped the background with sahara sand ink using a weathered wood stamp. I used distress ink walnut stain for the flower and grass, and sponged the edge of the tag with it. I then sponged the inner part of the edge of the tag with real rust (?name). The B was stamped using a foam letter stamp that I painted with crackle paint in burlap color. It crackled nicely! The top tab is sahara sand embossed with a cuttlebug folder and then distressed with the same inks. The ribbon is the new incolor ribbon. The flower is real rust and sahara sand card stock, punched inked and distressed with water then adhered together with a pearl in the middle that I ran some rust ink over to get rid of the whiteness of it :) Oh and last but not least this tag was inspired by another one I saw on a blog recently, shoot cant remember who's! But the tab top and bow and the shadow idea and wood background were from the tag I saw. So this is not my original but I did make a lot of changes to suit my needs :)
