Three ways to use your stamps ***Frosted Designs and Anything Goes***

Working at Michaels I get to play with various products to learn them to teach for classes or crops.  I have always had distress inks, but I have never really used them to their full potential......until now!!

For these tags I used various blending, spraying, and water techniques.......come back Jan 1st to learn more in a tutorial!!  I then had fun adding glitter and embellishments to jazz them all up!!

Frosted Designs has a challenge on right now to use GLITTER on any paper craft, so head on over and join the fun!!

Anything Goes Challenge Blog is also having a ANYTHING BUT A CARD challenge going on right now, so head on over and play along!!

I also has fun playing with three different ways to use the same stamp on these tags.  All the papers were Kraft color to begin with before I stamped and ink distressed them.

1) I used distress ink to stamp the tag (before adding any other colors) to create a background print - the butterfly in stamped in purple

2) I stamped in Staz-on ink in black, then blended in red distress ink over the top of the stamped image, cut the image out, and then added some red stickles to glam it up.

3) I heat embossed with red glitter embossing powder, blended with red distress ink over the embossed image, cut the image out, and added orange stickles to glam it up.

Challenges:  no cards - 12/13x - bingo - 12/14x vintage - 12/14x - bling - 1/1 - creatures - 12/14 - emboss - 12/22 - no xmas - 12/16
