Hello!  Linda here with one last post for Artistic Outpost.  I'm stepping down at the end of this term.  It's been fantastic experience to be part of the Artistic Ouptost design team for the past two years, but my path has taken a different turn and it's time to say good-bye.  

I used a number of stamps from several sets for this tag.  I started with a jumbo manila tag and using Jet Black archival ink, I stamped from Whimsical Melange, Flower Market and Generation Redux.  Then the tag was inked with Faded Jeans and then sprayed lightly with Faded Jeans Distress Spray Stain.  It was also edged with Walnut Stain.  A panel was stamped with the ledger stamp from Ephemera Backgrounds on white CS.  It was then inked with Vintage Photo and also sprayed with Vintage Photo Distress Spray Stain.  I ran a couple of rows of messy stitching around the edges as a decoration.  
Two white CS tags were cut with an older Sizzix die, stamped with the sentiments in Jet Black archival and then the moth and dragonfly from Flower Market were stamped in embossing ink and clear embossed.  The tags were then inked with Faded Jeans and sprayed with Faded Jeans and Vintage Photo Distress Spray Stains.  Filigree metals and twine finished off the piece.  
I want to thank Kelley and Lisa for the amazing opportunity I have had with the Artistic Outpost DT.  It's been a wonderful experience.  I'm very sorry that I won't be playing with the new images that will be coming in the upcoming year and wish them all the best.

Designer:  Linda Coughlin
