I started by giving my tag a coat of Gesso and when dry, I used a crackle embossing paste through a Flourish stencil.When it was dry and the cracks had appeared, I used Distress Stains in Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Iced Spruce, Tumbled Glass and Tattered Rose until I was happy with the colour and each time wiping the colour from the embossing
My image and sentiment were stamped in Potting Soil Archival. I cut the words apart, distressed the edges and then covered each one with Glossy Accents. The flowers are cut from the Thinlits Tiny Tattered Florals.
