Antique Glimmers Distressed Tag by Judy Jackson

Good day from Judy Jackson! Been stamping lately? I have -- but it wasn't the "exciting, fun, and creative" kind! I was stamping inside greetings on cards to sell in a new "hand made in America -- and made in Pennsylvania" craft store! Then I put each card in a clear plastic envelope to protect each card. I sure hope I sell them in this new little store! Early this evening I started going through Christmas cards I made last year -- did they have an inside verse yet? No, then can I sell them. Hmmm, but will they sell -- that is the question!

After I did that little job -- I came across a partially finished tag. I decided I would finish it and make a card with it.

The tag had begun with the Antique Glimmer spay. Then I took a section of some background paper and altered it -- I embossed it, sponged it, glimmer sprayed it, and used the little foam sponges to highlight the embossed area and to distress the edges. It looks nothing like the piece of background paper I started with. I added some lace and ribbon, a few buttons, and a faux spool of thread made from some cardboard and a die! Stamp credit - Stampers Anonymous.

And tada! I am happy with the finished product!

Have a wonderfully creative die!

Judy Jackson
