I love My Tattered Angels glimmer mists and Tim Holtz' stamps and one of the best ways to experiment and have fun with them is through altering tags. Here's how I altered mine.
I started off with some large manila tags. Mine are about 6" x 3".
I misted the tags with the new Fall colours from My Tattered Angels:
I then inked the edges using Rangers distress inks for definition:
Now for some stamping. I chose a couple of my favourite foliage Tim Holtz stamps and stamped these on the tags as a background:
Next, I stamped and heat embossed my main images in black so they would stand out better. I like how heat embossed images add texture to a layout too. The butterfly stamp and Dream quote stamp are a couple of my favourites from Tim Holtz.
And here's how my completed tag looks:
And here's how my tags look with some hand-dyed ribbons I made myself. I like how each tag is completely unique because the mists are all different.
I hope you enjoyed the mini tutorial. Do share with us your altered tags on the YSS gallery.
