here. The colors made me think of peacocks, which is why I stamped a peacock feather and a peacock on each of the tags.
This tag was using black gesso as the base. I stamped a flourish with embossing ink and used Recollections "Glacier" embossing powder. After I heated the powder with my heat tool, I painted a coat of Americana Acrylic paint (Light Buttermilk) over the whole tag. Then using a baby wipe, I rubbed most of the paint off giving it a shabby chic look. You can see the video tutorial for this one here.
I played with Tim Holtz crackle paints. For this tag, I painted the whole tag with Americana Acrylic Paint "Heritage Red". I let that dry completely and then painted the whole tag again with Tim Holtz Crackle Paint, "Picket Fence". I let the tag dry by itself, which is the recommended method rather than using a heat tool on it
The left side of the tag is the effect of the two paints. The right side of the tag I used "Tea Dye" distress ink with a blending tool. This is a good way to tone down the white but is not really needed to see the crackle. Very, very cool!
