So here is my distress piece, in product and hopefully not design!
I used my favourite vintage photo and a bit of walnut stain thrown in for good measure!!!Then I used a cog stamp I made using the technique in Tim's book page 66 of compendium of curiosities vol 2, I love that the dies can be so versatile to make die cut shapes, masks and even custom stamps!!! How cool,is that?!!
I blasted the tag with my heat gun and then distressed the edges using a distressing tool! Then added walnut stain distress ink.
Left the tag to dry for some time and then added patches of background stamp from mixed media plate, inked with embossing ink and sprinkled with walnut stain distress powder.I love the depth and this gives ..so touchy feely!
Finally I added some cogs, cut from the same die, from the fab ranger foil, embossed to using the rivet folder which I also LOVE!!!!!! And then I added espresso and pitch black paint dabbers and buffed off..i cannot stop making these cogs!!!
