Bombshell Montly Challenge - Tags

Good morning Bombshell fans!!  Today we're playing along with Ms. January's challenge right here on the Bombshell Forum.  The challenge is "Let's Play Tag!".  So I've created a fun tag using my new Homeward Bound stamp set. 

I've used the compass image from the set, inked in three different Distress Inks - Pumice stone (tanish), Gathered Twigs (rusty brown), Chipped Sapphire (blue) stamped onto watercolor paper.  Once stamped, I spritzed the paper twice at close range with Pearlized Water to give it a subtle shimmer.  I then punched them out and coated them in Crackle Glaze.  After dry, I inked the edges with an ink blending tool and embellished the center with a resin flower from Recollections.  
The tag is also from Recollections and I've used a bunch of scrap that I had lying around to create the background.  I tore some with my hands to give it a rough look and other pieces I trimmed off.  I stitched the center with a zig zag stitch as well as a straight stitch. Before I added my cracked images I washed the entire tag and background papers with my Picket Fence Distress Stain.  I added a tiny clothespin and my PTI twill ribbon and was happy!  

I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired!!

Thanks for coming by today!

Crafty Hugs!
