Hi all,
Just a quick post to show you a tag I made earlier using a cog mask from Tando creative available at the Craft Barn
I will run you through the process of creating the background quickly.

Lay the mask over the tag,  Pick up some copper acrylic paint using a stencil brush and gently dab the paint down to fill in the cogs. I have used Americana Royal Ruby dazzling metallic's.
Once dry blend distress inks in order of: Old Paper, Rusty Hinge, Antique Photo and aged Mahogany, leaving the tag slightly lighter in the middle, the acrylic will resist the ink.
Pick up some water onto a round brush and let it drip down from some of the cogs. Once dry you can start to stamp!
Other materials used include:
Tando Small Book plates
Distress Rock Candy
Glossy Accents
Flight of Fancy
Gothic and Antiques
Image Transfer
Googly eyes

Have a great day,
