I try to post all my little projects here and sometimes I share other fabulous ideas from my favorite artists. My favorite products are from Graphic 45, Retro Cafe Art Gallery, Gecko Galz, Flying Unicorn and Two Ten Studios (links provided on the right.

New Altered Tag
Today my challenge was to create an altered tag for a swap at www.swap-bot.com
First I stained the manila tag crunching it up and putting it in a bowl of leftover coffee. I set it out to dry and it had a beautiful texture afterward, to which I applied Distress ink and dropped a little water on it to spread the color. I selected a vintage stamp image from Two Ten Studios, as well as the words and butterfly to create a little collage. After glueing it all down, I finished it with a coat of Glossy Accents and added some Stickles. I hope my partner likes it!
