Vintage Tags using distress inks

Hi Friends and Happy Saturday!!! I have something a little different from my usual card to share with you all today!

Here are some vintage tags I've made using my distress inks...

So when I first started making cards, my style was very much different from how I create today.  I would say it was more of a vintage grunge style.  I definitely couldn't do without my distress inks and I loved to layer and use flowers in everything I made.  Now with distress inks as popular as ever as well as stencils, pastes, sprays, water coloring, background stamps etc..., I've been having so much fun creating different backgrounds with all of my art media supplies! I also love layering whenever I have a chance which is perfect with these types of projects! 

Here are the supplies used:
Victorian Velvet - Tim Holtz distress ink
Spun Sugar - Tim Holtz distress ink
Vintage Photo - Tim Holtz distress ink
Dried Marigold - Tim Holtz distress ink
Black Soot - Tim Holtz distress ink
Butterfly punch - Martha Stewart 
Black Sparkling Embossing Powder - Ranger
Black Tuxedo - Memento Ink
Multi- Medium Matte glue - Ranger

Hope this gives you some inspiration to get grungy with your inks!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!
