very very distressed tags and MTTCC


Well what can I say about these tags, the swap this month for Hels was to have tags as shabby and old looking as you can, do you know just how hard it is to turn a nice new tag in to an old wreck, very very difficult, these tags have been burnt, screwed up, inked, crackle painted and rubbed to death, the stamps are Tims birds and the gates from Paperbag Studios, also I used a fine gold pen, I still have the backs of the tags to do yet but am waiting for a Stamp. these will cover the MTTCC which is birds this week.
well what you will make of these I do not know, but thanks for looking xx
