Zoe - 28th Challenge "Aged/Distressed"

Good morning Lovelies, well here we are another fortnight gone and that means another Rhedd and Rosie's challenge, this time I get to choose the theme and winner! The theme is "Aged/Distressed"

Sandie is sponsoring this challenge and offering this fab prize for the winner:

Here are my tags

My first tag is Kraft card inked with distress inks, I used a TH layering stencil to create a few splodges in Walnut Stain DI, the stamps are all Tim Holtz, I then flicked black soot re-inker over it and highlighted areas with a white marker, I distressed the edges and inked with Walnut Stain DI, a very simple and quick tag.

My second tag is also Tim Holt inspired using his stamps and cogs die and embellishments, this time I used my Metallic Pan Pastels, I used black card for the tag, you need to use versamark to make the Metallic pans really stand out, otherwise they are very subtle, also remember to seal with cheap hairspray before stamping, again I used Black Soot re-inker to spray onto it, and edged with BS DI, the cogs I used the ribbed side of Kraft card and coloured using Black Soot distress paint, once dry I pressed into versamark ink pad but not all over, then used the copper Metallic Pan Pastels, I was so pleased how the cogs turned out looking all rusty and worn, I added my embellishments and voila!

Thank you for visiting! I hope you are inspired enough to join in? Happy days xx Zoe xx
