Background Fun with Tags

Hello! Peggy Here to show you my tags created with Sin City Stamps background set from Terri Sproul Art Journal 2 set.
Supplies used today are: 
Shipping Tags
White Gesso
Brown Stazon Ink
Black Stazon Ink
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Black Soot
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Versa Mark Ink
Clear Embossing Powder
Black Embossing Powder
Tim Holtz Distress Tool
Heat Gun
Seam binding optional

 I started with White Gesso on my tags. I wanted to play with resist so after stamping my background with Stazon Ink, I embossed another background stamp on top using Versa Mark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder. I headed this to set with my heat gun.

I stamped sentiments on my tag from the same set.. it reads.. "Just Love Us + Art". I distressed using Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I tore some edges and also distressed with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain . I used a distressing tool from Tim Holtz along the edges. I had a very sturdy tag so I creased it up a little to look worn. 
Here is another White Gesso Tag with a brick background and sentiment from Terri Sproul's Set Art Journal 2. I added some stitch marks with black Sharpie fine tip. I distressed this tag with Tim Holtz Distress Ink black soot. I used Black Embossing powder on the sentiment.
Here are my final two tags! I added some custom died seam binding to match.

I hope you enjoyed my quick tags and I encourage you to come on over to Sin City Stamps and take a look at their great selection of stamps and stencils.
