Faux kraft resist tag

Hi there, I really enjoyed making this tag with the Texture Fragment stamps. I love creating backgrounds and these stamps are perfect for so many styles. I decided to have a go at making a kraft resist effect by layering up some of the stamps from this themeplate but it doesn't show up too well in the pic

I stamped the filigree panel stamp in pumice stone and then overstamped with the same stamp in tea dye distress ink, using a brick effect to overlap the stamps. The gorgeous border was stamped with black versafine and embossed with clear EP. Next I stamped the texture stamp  around the edges with versamark and embossed with clear EP before adding lots of vintage photo and a little black soot distress ink.

I stamped the sentiment from 'Home Sweet Home' and again embossed with clear EP. The main image is also from 'Home Sweet Home', painted with distress inks and framed with a diecut frame that I embossed with black soot distress embossing powder. To finish off I've added some ribbon from my stash, coloured with vintage photo distress ink and a little brass effect brad.

I hope you are enjoying all the inspiration from the DT this week
