Time Flies Tag

I knew my Viva Las VegaStamps! would be perfect on this tag after experimenting with my stash of supplies to make the background.

Wad up and smooth yellow tissue paper a few times. Place the wadded up yellow tissue paper on freezer paper or wax paper, spray several colors of dylusions spray ink over the paper, while wet sprinkle a little glass glitter over the paper along with a few sprays of heirloom gold. Move the paper away to a clean surface to start drying. (the remainder of ink on wax or freezer paper can be used to ink up several tags or cards)
Place the colorful tissue between two pieces of copy paper and then dry with craft iron. Choose a selected piece of tissue paper to cover a tag or card.

Distress markers were used to color the Large Bird Flying that was stamped on back of Kromecote. edge trimmed piece with a little distress ink and apply to tag with Miracle Tape.
Ink Time Flies with black ink, stamp on background, immediately pour ultra high gloss clear embossing powder over the stamped image, pour off extra and heat set. I wish my camera would pick up the high gloss finish.
White crackle paint was used on chipboard snowflake, when dry, add a little bit of broken china ink around snowflake. Apply distress stain to seam binding, crinkle up, heat set and add to tag to finish!
