Up up and away

I used Distress Re-inkers to make the background of this tag. I put one drop of Broken China and Peacock Feathers onto my craft mat and added lots of water. I also added a splosh of Picket Fence Distress Stain. I then rubbed my tag into the inks and dried it. I repeated this several times to build up the layers. I then splashed it with water to add extra texture. Lastly, I stamped the image of Big Ben (Paper Artsy) onto the Tag.

I stamped the balloon (Indigo Blu) three times onto the brown card and cut out different sized pieces and stuck them together with foam pads to give a dimensional look. Having stuck it on the tag I added the little page tab and the words.

Your background is fab. I always forget about my reinkers.
