I stamped the flag with distress stains and then added the picket fence stain
in the areas where the white would be on the flag. Then I used
clear embossing powder and heat set it.
I used several distress inkpads for the rest of the tag, then I splated
water to give the speckle effect. I sewn around the tag and then
stamped the London over the flag and also heat embossed that.
I'm not sure I like the frame I made as I went over the edges with the UTEE but as
you can see the chipboard frame was entirely different to what it came
out as lol, the inside is a stamp.
I also dipped my edges into the UTEE and I used distress stains for
my ribbon, to grunge it up a bit I also used black soot. Then I twisted
and tied some knots at the end then pulled them apart to add some more texture.
The bottom ribbon is a book page that I sewn, then I covered it with
distress stain and did the edges in black soot. Then I stapled it
onto my tag, before I did I coloured my staples with a
black promarker :-)
Eek look at the time, it finishes in about 10 minutes eek eek lol lol. Happy Crafting :-)
