12 Tags of 2013- July!!

hello everyone!! so this months tag is very patriotic! I loved the idea of putting crackle under the distress stain! I think the final effect looked really cool! and the brayer technique was just pure genius and I have already used it on some of my other projects!
so this is my tag and I thought the final effect turned out pretty cool!
the first thing I did was to die cut the old glory die and paint it with rock candy crackle paint
then I used barn door and salty ocean distress stain with a brayer and rolled it on the tag just like Tim did to his tag

then I went around the edges with vintage photo and walnut stain distress ink. this is what it looked like at this stage

then I used the same distress stain over the flag and stars then its all about embellishments and finishing touches and your done! to glue on the stars and the flag I used foam dots.
