3 more tags and another canvas....

Wow, it was nice having a three-day weekend here, the weather was good, and I had plenty of time for crafting. Made some more distressed tags - what else? and another canvas to display them. Used all my favourite Tim Holtz colours again - wild honey, forest green, stormy skies, victorian velvet, crushed sage and brushed corduroy. After distressing, I stamped the backgrounds and then ran riot with all the embellies I could find. The wings have been stamped, cut out, painted with clear rock candy crackle varnish and then inked before doing the edges with a gold-leaf pen. The canvas was distressed with the same colours and then glazed with mod-podge. Was great fun to make, as usual!
