Distressed Tag

I made a distressed tag for a scrapbook page.  I used actual tea to dye my lace because it seemed to take forever to color it with the Distress Ink the last time. I still used my distress inks on my background paper.  I have an old book of Victorian era ads, so I made a copy of one of the pages and distressed it....though most of it's covered.  I have no idea what I was doing wrong, lol.  I used both my new Copics and my Prisma pencils to color her.


Entered in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp:  Holiday Fun
Creative Inspirations:  fall project 
Paperplay:  autumn
Paper Sundaes:  mixed mediums
Lots to do:  distressed tag

Servicing your air conditioner on a regular basis will preserve your power expenses down. The better your air conditioning unit is running, the less resources it'll use, thus, saving you moeny on energy bills. It truly is also wise to maintain your unit often rather than pay big repair costs when it finally breaks down. A service call is much cheaper than a replace the unit call.
