If you've arrived here from the sweet and talented Silke's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning!  Click HERE.





I decided to use the set Save Time from the Blessing Collection.  I had fun with ink and masking for this project!  I started by ripping a piece from the center of copy paper.  I wanted it just large enough to fit the sentiment.  I then place the ripped piece down and inked Tumbled Glass Ranger distress ink around it.  I then took the negative piece and inked Vingtage Photo (Ranger Distress) inside.  I placed the torn piece down again and inked some Vintage Photo around it and along the edges of the tag.

After that, I laid a gold mesh (The Funkie Junkie) down and sponged some Vintage Cream Ink (PTI) over it.  I added some vintage cream splotches for added interest also.  Lastly, I punched a border along some copy paper using an EK Success punch, layed that along the edge of my tag and added some Black Soot (Ranger Distress Ink).  





That's it as far as the inking and masking go.  I added some fun embellishments, wrinkled ribbon and fibers to finish the tag off.  I hope you've been inspired.

Now for some more fabulous inspiration, head on over to the beautiful and creative Betty's blog.

Thanks for visiting!!  
Happy Stamping!!

So very pretty Tosha! I love the antique feel to this gem. The bits of buttons and lace remind me of a treasure trove of lovelies I would find in my Grandmother's sewing box. Sentimental, fresh and a delightful design! Hugs and blessings...
