tip: when I was a kid my father worked for a construction crew (Dan Deering co.-wow, can you believe I remember the name of the company), anyway he would come home full of dirt, grime and tar because he ran the big roller that flattened the tar...and the only thing that would clean his hands was a soap called LAVA. I discovered that it is also great for getting inky/painted hands clean.
now back to my tag and what I did to it ..... I sprayed it with dylusion sprays, let that dry. got out dylusion stencil (have a theme going here-dylusions) and sprayed through the stencil ... let that dry ... yes, a lot of drying time here. added a rub-on in the bottom corner then stamped skeleton head and flowers. highlighted with white pen ... did what I call faux bleaching that is where you paint with water and let it "bleach" out the color. this only works with certain inks and sprays like dylusions products or distress products ... others may work you just need to experiment. last I added ribbon ... first I threaded a piece of fiber through the hole ... next wrapped variegated ribbon around my hand which made loops ... took the wrapped ribbon placed it between the fiber threaded through the hole and tied a knot then separated the loops for a fun loopy bow.
