Step1_11

step 1: stamp the santa image with black waterproof ink.

Step2_11

step 2: stamp the tree with  peeled paint distress ink. (*tip: to create a collage look, stamp your image off of the edge of the tag.)

Step3_9

step 3: stamp the "believe" stamp with fired brick distress ink – overlapping the other images.

Step4_9

step 4: using the ink blending foam and tool, apply color to areas of the tag.

Step5_10

step 5: drag paper distresser along the edges of the tag.

Step6_9

step 6: ink edges using brown distress ink with ink blending foam and tool to finish background.

Step7_8

step 7: to create hammered hardware for tag, remove 2 hinges from grungeboard  elements pack, 1 bookplate, and numbers 2 and 5.

Step8_8

step 8: paint hardware grungeboard pieces using metallic paint dabbers and numbers with black paint dabber – let dry. (*tip: don’t forget to attach the grungeboard pieces to the craft sheet with glue dots so they are easier to paint)

Step9_8

step 9: attach metal bump tip to texture hammer.

Step10_8

step 10: place hardware grungeboard shapes on to hammer mat.

Step11_8

step 11: mist painted grungeboard with water. (*tip: whenever you are texturing heavy board, be sure to mist with water first.  this will help the thicker materials hold the texture).

Step12_8

step 12: start hammering the piece using firm pressure, but smaller taps – we’re not building a house here so don’t just bang away on it. (*tip: continue hammering pieces until desired look is achieved.  grungeboard will not fall apart when hammered. if you need to re-wet, no problem).

Step13_5

step 13: ink hammered pieces using ink blending foam and tool. (*tip: this will get inks into the crevices your created with the hammer).

Step14_5

step 14: attach brads to tag, and since the texture hammer also works great on metal, make your brads look like old nail heads by tapping on the tops of them to dent them. (*tip: be sure you are working on the hammer mat as it will protect your work surface and provide more resistance to the hammer).

Step15_4

step 15: attach painted numbers with adhesive of choice.
