Tag Details

1. Mask and stencil are by Simon Says Stamp. Background and text are by Hero Arts.
2. I first stamped the background text, then applied several Distress Inks as background. I then sponged Distress Inks over the leave mask to create depth. I applied Embossing Paste over leave stencil, then covered with Distress Embossing Powder to create not just the texture but a rustic look.


When I was making this tag, I was thinking about my younger daughter who is a senior college student looking for a full-time job after graduation in next May. I could tell she has been under tremendous stress. “Life is an Adventure” is what I want to tell her. Hope the warm color scheme will warm her heart.

I am happy with what the tag came out. Hope you like it too.
