Brown & pink tag

So far, I feel I haven't been too successful in making tags. Tag Tuesday set the challenge of making a pink and brown tag, so I thought I would have another go.

To start, I rubbed Distress Inks over the tag. I then embossed it using my Cuttlebug and rubbed vintage photo Distress Ink over it again to highlight some of the raised numbers. Next, I sprayed on some Radiant Rain to give the metallic shine. I had a scrap of paper that I had previously coloured with Starburst Stains, so I added this to the right-hand side of the tag and edged it with faux stitching in brown ink. The brown and pink flower, ribbons and three pink brads were added as finishing touches.

Let me know what you think.
