Messy tag - Spotlight

Hi All
I have two posts today which originated from the same idea. I wanted to try the spotlight technique from The Treehouse and thought I would do a distressed design using a tag.
The stamp is from Hero Arts and called Skyland Bookmark. I stamped two of the images and used the Nestabilities Labels Four to cut part of it out. I coloured it using both Promarkers and DIs round the edges and then covered it with tattered rose distress stickles. The tag was distressed with DIs and I used a variety of stamps for the background, I also experimented with the TH distress embossing powders. I finished off by using the holly stickles round the edge.

There's a fab challenge at Tuesday Taggers this week, sponsored by Georgina. Have a look at her blog for some great inspiration.
Have a good week. LOL Bxx
