Nostalgic tags for the *let's ink it up* challenge






I don't usually enter many challenges, but decided to do one for a change...Made 2 tags using ceramic paper, the background has been stamped first with resist ink, then distressed with TH inks, and stamped using archival ink for the face and stazon for the owl and skull. The images have then been clear embossed. The owl and the skull have been powdered with perfect pearls. The tags have then been embellished with lace, flowers, buttons and some hand doodling. Thanks for looking!
