|Shimmer and Shine from Rock Candy Distress Paint|
|Distress Stains applied with brayer.|
As usual I didn't have everything that Tim used, so some of the things I did a little differently. I stamped the images (instead of die-cutting an image) on Grunge paper with Archival Jet Black Ink and after the Rock Candy Distress Paint had dried applied the Distress Stain with a brush to the flag because of the smaller details in the stamp. I applied the stains directly to the other images with the dauber. I trimmed out the images with my tonic scissors. I stamped the flag and statue in black on the background so I wouldn't lose the blueprint lines. Then glued the cut out images on top using Glossy Accents. The white stripes in the Flag and the highlights on The Statue of Liberty were added with Picket Fence Distress Marker. I also used some paper from Tim's Seasonal Paper Stash and Pewter Distress Crackle Paint on the Grungeboard stars and the Idea-ology star.
I had so much fun working on my tag. I hope you check out Tim's tag and participate in the challenge for July.
