Tim times Ten Stampin' Dymonz Grand Giveaway. - Challenge #8-Distress Tag

Wow...We are at Challenge #8 already.........Have you checked out the tags the ladies have been creating over at Stampin Dymonz Scrap Shack ????..........  Loads of creativity ladies.......And so much fun......We are down to Day 8- Challenge #8.  For this tag we had to use a distress technique. Use a minimum of 3 colors of ink, at least 1 image stamp and 1 sentiment stamp. You must color your sentiment stamp using two different ink colors and stamp -- this should be one press on the tag and not "stamp one color, clean stamp, stamp second color." A unique piece of ribbon or other embellishment should be used for the hole in the tag

And here is my take on the challenge....I am a little rushed right now.........and just finished my tag but....This is my first attempt........with the final pic of my completed tag.. (Yep...) I'm going to do a "Do-over"...Just for "MY" satisfaction.....(Hehe..).......I just have to make it right.....(so....check back later....)

                                                                     Front of tag  (click on pic for larger image)
I sprayed my surface with water  first and placed three small lines of ink on surface. Placed tag on top of ink mixture and then placed paper on top of tag to get rid of excess ink.  Heat dryed.
The sentitments are very small....But there are two.....One reads "Live the LOVE you've imagined"...and the other "Art is the Shadow of what a person is thinking"....from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous "Mini Muse" stamp collection

Hi Dee! First off, Love you tag! Love all of the trinkets and the flowers- so pretty! And, thank you so much for your sweet comments on my tag. I just kind of winged it with the stamping because I'm not really a stamper, so I don't really have a technique. :)
