Tag Technique

The Grungy Monday 12 challenge is to try the Tim Holtz Blog Technique Challenge from April 2008. This is a variation of "shabby chic" using Design Paper. For my paper I used some Kodomo Washi paper. The print paper really looks stunning when the paint is washed away from the embossed harlequin stamp. I used Thickers for my chipboard pieces. The use of the brighter design paper on the tag gives a  cheery look to the distressed tag. This project took a little more time because of all the steps and because of the drying time needed, but it was fun.
