Crafting the past few days has been a bit thin on the ground. It's as if I'm all crafted out. I couldn't sleep so got up early, sat at my craft desk and pondered, resulting in this very grunge looking tag.
I had prepared the background some time ago,using Gesso through a brick work stencil. I accelerated the drying time by using a heat gun. Once dry, I then rubbed a mix of yellow and green ink across the surface, which left the majority of the white Gesso exposed.
I added some weeds using a Hobby Art stamp from their "Dandelion Wishes" set. The cracks in the wall and the cat were both stamps from a Visible Image set called "Create It". I then inked the edges in shades of beige, red and black. Finally, I used my new Christmas gadget, Brother P-touch H100LB label maker to create the words.
