2. Emboss the tag with an embossing folder (I used Cuttlebug Clockworks). Make sure you emboss AFTER you spray your tag with mist. If you emboss first, the mist may wet the tag too much, causing your embossing to flatten. Rub the raised embossed areas with Graphic 45 Dark Cashmere Antiquing ink.
3. Die cut a gear from chipboard and spray with Black Velvet Smooch Spritz. The gear die is from Sizzix, a Tim Holtz Alterations die called Gadget Gears.
4. Stamp the sentiment with Mudslide archival ink, then die cut and emboss the sentiment with Spellbinders Nestabilities die template Labels Twenty-five. Ink with Graphic 45 Venetian Lace antiquing ink.
The stamp is a wood mount stamp from the Hampton Art Diffusion Artstamps line, and is called Art Soul.
I think that when God gives us an artistic talent and an artistic mind, He does so, not only so that we will worship Him with our creativity, but so that through our artistic soul we can draw others to Him. I hope to do that, even in a small way.
