A new challenge

I am trying new techniques that Tim Holtz taught in his Creative Chemistry 101 class.  All of the techniques are a lot of fun.  Some turn out better than others.  This particular tag was done with Distress Inks that were sponged on and then blended with water.  First I ran the tag through a texture fade.  I used Broken China, Peeled Paint and Rusty Hinge inks then blended everything with a little spritz of water.  Afterwards I sprayed some Tattered Angels Bubblegum Pink over it all to give it a little sparkle.  The edges were inked with Walnut Stain.  The stamps are all Dyan Reaveley as is the phrase.  I wanted her to look a little steampunk hence the key.  That's what all of us girls need now a days to keep going.....just like a wind up doll!


  1. What a great idea to give her the key! Maybe if you turn it, she'll receive some new stamps ;-)

  2. The key definitely adds a steampunk feel! Great tag!

    Thanks for questing with us at UPA!
