Once dry I ripped some of the edges off and distress the edge of the tag.
10. My next step was to splatter a little bit of my Distress Paint (Tarnished brass) over the tag. I just dipped my paintbrush in the paint bottle and tapped the handle part of my brush on my other hand (with the brush end over top of the tag). I moved it around to disperse the paint around the tag as I tapped.
11. For the ribbon embellishments at the top I used Tims crinkle ribbon and Distress Stain (Brushed pewter and Dusty concord).
Take the stains and dab both colors onto your craft mat (randomly). I dabbed a sufficient amount, enough to cover the entire ribbon.
Take your ribbon and dab it into the Distress stain until your ribbon is fairly wet and covered in color. Next I crinkled up the ribbon really good. I basically smushed it into a really small ball and then just let it release naturally. I took my heat gun and dried the ribbon. Careful you don't overheat it and that you use tweezers to hold the ribbon down on the mat while you are drying it. I held my heat gun quite a ways away from the ribbon as I was drying it.
Once dried tie it to the top of your tag. I created a bow which you can't really see in the pictures but that is how I wanted it to look.
12. I didn't take a picture of this next step but at the last minute I decided to add two metal embellishments. I added a little plane at the top and a little crown/key in the bottom spot. You can see them in the final picture below. These I purchased from Dime Store emporium .. LOVE this little shop.
Here is my completed tag. Thanks for "tagging" along :)
