I made this tag for a Christmas swap I'm hosting. It was very much Tim Holtz inspired. He has such awesome ideas. I took a couple color ink pads and dapped around on my craft sheet then took some of my homemade shimmer mist and sprayed onto the inks. I then laid my cs on top. It has a nice little shimmer to it. On the numbers I used some of the new distress stickles. The distressed stickles are not much different from the regular ones. I found that the opening is larger so they come out of the bottle easier. They also are a little less shiny then regular stickles and the specks are larger. They are fun for giving that old look to things!
