Some Distressing...

For the Cupcake Craft Challenge #58, I created some distressed gift tags. For the one on the left I used a sponge with Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye. I used Worn Lipstick Distress ink on the flower and finished it off with some bling. I cut a stem from some green paper and wrapped it with ribbon. I used scrapbooker's floss for the hole at the top.
For the 2nd tag I used a sponge with Ranger Tim Holtz Peeled Paint first. Then I placed my mini Tim Holtz mask over it and sponged it with Weathered Wood. I love masking now! :) It was super easy and fun to use. The flower on this tag is actually a paper scallop punch that I rubbed in water and Worn Lipstick and perfect pearls in Forever Red (which is hard to see). It created a nice faded look with some shimmer. I then cut each petal and creased it a little to look like a flower. I finished it with some Hero Arts bling.
Lastly, I stamped them with Stampin' Up stamps "Yummy".
I love making these tags! I think I might have to make some for Christmas gifts this year!
