I colored this tag with the Chalkboard shimmer spray in Concord. Once dry I used Distress Ink Dusty Concord and inked around the edges and overtop the tag a bit where the spray didn't cover completely. I then took my water mister and lightly added some drops of water to the tag to give it a speckly look. With all the dampness the tag started to get that grungy crinkly kind of look and so instead of letting it completely dry I used Distress ink Chipped Sapphire and ran it along the edges and overtop of some of the wrinkles on the tag.
Next I used Jamie Echt 6x6 stencil Mini tile texture and Distress ink Chipped Sapphire to create a background look. I found this image of this vintage typewriter on Pinterest and printed it out. I scaled it down to the size I wanted. The black and white image was a bit too sharp for me so I sprayed some Perfect Pearls heirloom gold shimmer mist overtop to tone it down. I cut a slit with my Exacto knife where paper would be and ran a bit of scripted washi tape thru the slit to mimic paper. I added a little Idea-ology mini paper clip to the washi paper.
I pulled out one of my stampendous clear stamp sets Vintage typewriter and used the Just a Note stamp. I stamped it with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Black embossing enamel. As an after thought, I think I would have preferred to used the Distress embossing powders. The embossing enamel just ran a bit too much and blurred the words. Oh well... next time! LOL
I finished off the tag with some black script washi tape, an idea-ology pen nib, and lastly my black micropen and a ruler to draw a few lines along the side and bottom. And that's all folks...
I hope you like looking at them as much as I enjoy making them. Thanks for popping in to see me. I hope you'll leave me a note so I know you were here. :) Night!
