This tag was made following the perfect distress technique from the Compendium of Curiosities book by Tim Holtz. Turn to page 38 for the instructions.
For the background I used tumbled glass and peeled paint distress inks.
The houses are from one of my favourite stamp set - Craft houses by AVEC. The lamp post is one I carved from an eraser.
This technique has made the tag look a bit watery so I accentuated it with weathered wood brushed on to look like water at the bottom.
I enjoyed using this technique - it seemed a bit scary and out of control at first, but turned out ok. I decided to leave this tag embellishmentless - nothing I added looked right! But I think this tag looks very nice as it is.
This tag is being entered into the Studio L3 CCC #21 perfect distress technique
