Just made this 4th of July tag.   I used Distress ink- Faded Jeans, Distress stain- Festive Berries, Distress Paint- Picket fence.  I used an Idea-ology mirror sheet to create the star with Tim Holtz's Bright Star 3-D die.  On both the tag and the star i used the Riveted Metal texture fade.  I have an Idea-ology clip holding the sweet land of Liberty card. The assorted ribbons I got at a cute stamp store in Plano Texas called Stamp Asylum.  The only thing I will say is don't even bother taking the paper of the mirror sticker sheet because you glue down the stars flap anyway and once you run it through the die it is in little pieces and becomes a time waster to peal if off.  Also until youve finished shaping the star and have placed it on the tag leave the film on the front of the mirror to cut down the fingerprints.  Thanks for looking

I love to create.  This is a mini album cover that I created to enter in the Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 contest for June.  I used Distress pens, Stamper Anonymous stamps, distress ink, distress paint, distress stain, Idea-ology gears, and charms.  I love how you can add water to the distress pens and they act just like water color paint.  Now the only problem is completing the album.
