Tag Tuesday - backgrounds

There is a guest hostess this week at Tag Tuesday, Pam, from Scrappy Pam Designs who has asked us to use "backgrounds" as our theme this week.

I started by putting barn door and aged mahogany inks on my craft mat, spritzing them with perfect pearl/distress reinker mixes and dragging the tag through it.  Then I put it through my bingo texture fade in the big shot (don't ask me why I didn't think to use this for last week's theme.....) and sanded the top layer.

Fantastic tag, Helen! I'm glad you waited to use your bingo folder, as it makes a beautifully distressed tag with the sanded areas and the Distress inks.
