Good hunting

Here's a tag I started Friday-ish and finished yesterday:


  • Library card inked with DOx in Vintage Photo then sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mist in Heirloom Gold* 
  • The brown panel is Strathmore watercolor paper coated with Teresa Collins modeling paste through Tim's Florals stencil.  Once dry, I saturated it with Distress Stain in Vintage Photo and added Stampendous Aged Silver Frantage.  The panel was affixed using Recollections brads at the corners.
  • The sweet lil' Annie Oakley was coated with a thin layer of Distress Collage Medium in Vintage and mounted with 3M dimensional tape.
  • The quote, which was actually the jumping point for this project, was cut from an old school reader and coated with Distress Collage Medium in Vintage also.
  • The bow was taken from an old Christmas tag made for my daughter.  The tag had rolled around the junk-drawer in our kitchen since, well, Christmas, and got kinda disassembled. I salvaged the bow and it found a home on this tag!  That is my altered embellishment.  It was already altered by being dyed for the original project.
  • The trim at the bottom added a bit of wild-west elegance, I thought.  From my stash.
  • The pin at the top is 7 Gypsies.
*This is the actual Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls mist-- not the subtle mix I often use that I made myself.  This is the bottom of the sprayer and thus very concentrated!  YUM.

This tag also has a sister-tag which I'll link later... once I find time to post it! :)
