I pulled a #5 manila tag from my stash of tags (even smaller than my usual, I later found out, but it worked) and a scrap of Distress Watercolor paper to work with. I stamped a pair of images in Archival “Jet Black” ink and proceeded to water color them with Distress Markers and a water brush.
I followed the technique as described in the July 2015 tutorial and applied Micro Glaze and a water brush full of Weathered Wood Distress Ink
I then trimmed the watercolor paper to fit my tag.
Meanwhile, I completed the backgournd tag by blending more ink onto it, cutting slits as specified in the April 2015 tutorial, and die cutting a word into the bottom of the tag.
