Huckleberry Finn Tag 2

I made second tag from the Artistic Outpost stamp set Huckleberry Finn. 

The "Dream" sentiment was glued to the tag before I inked the tag with Iced Spruce Distress Ink. That way when I embossed the tag with the Clocks embossing folder, the tag looked like it the "Dream" sentiment had always been part of the tag. Not like I added it.  Does that make sense? :/  Anyway, I also inked the embossing folder with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink. Then I added Vintage Photo stickles  for a little pop!

I stamped the image of the two boys looking outward on glossy paper with black Archival Ink.  I then the distressed the edges with my trusty Basic Grey Precision Tools. Can I tell you?  These are great!  I then inked the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.

Last, I stapled the stamped image onto the tag using the Tim Holtz stapler and "Voila!" it is finished :).

Dancing Cuties

My talented sister gave me a beautiful postcard featuring a dancing cutie from the Twinkle Toes Cricut cartridge. She used the DCWV cardstock called Performance for the background.
