Drips and Distress Tag

Hello Again!

Today I want to share a fun tag I created using Viva Las Vegastamps to play along with the 

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. The theme was "Tag it"

Join the Challenge HERE

 This also goes with the Mixed Media mood boards challenge(on Facebook)

My inspiration for this tag came from Dee Dee Catron (you really need to check out her YouTube) 
The video that inspired this background can be found HERE. I pretty much followed her technique with my own twist (and w/o the amazing transfer she did... **swoon**) 

Stamps Used: 
Deathhead Moth
Cross Marks Background
Scribble Circle
Row of distressed lines 3
(Or get the whole yummy art journaly plate HERE)

  1. Very cool! I like all the textures. And of course I like that it stars the Death's Head Hawkmoth(Acherontia atropos). Nice work!

  2. I love this great looking tag! Lot of fun details. I love that old typewriter too! Great steps photos.

  3. Bee-utiful! Your inspiration really comes through--dynamite colors and arrangement.
