At my work, Cupboard Distributing, we specialize in wood pieces for crafting and painting. Since I don't paint, I've always been trying to incorporate my paper crafting with the wood. And when the Distress Stains came along, I had my answer.
This tag is fairly simple, but it demonstrates how easy and handy Distress Stains are. This tag was coated with Dusty Concord stain.
I heat embossed a stenciled image on top of the stained tag. Adding some finishing touches of adhesive pearls, ribbon, and a philosophy tag for good measure.
The ribbon is the Idea-ology Crinkle Ribbon. I colored the ribbon with purple ink spray and crumpled it before I dried it with the Heat It tool. Make sure you use gloves when crumpling the freshly inked ribbon. (I should have listened to my friend Sherrie as I have a purple left hand at the moment! LOL)
The sentiment is another from one of my favorite Tim Holtz sets: CMS 132 Words for Thought. It was stamped on some scrap manilla tag I had and inked with some Stormy Sky Distress Ink.
See you soon!!
