Moments Altered Tag

This is another DT project for Tim Holtz. I've altered an old tag that I've been saving. This is a very fun and easy tag.

I'll explain more in the close-ups below.
I've first embossed the tag using the texture fades embossing folder and then I've painted the embossed images using white gesso. Later, ink it with various tones of distress inks and stamped on it.

Use a grungeboard wing, a muse token and a grungeboard crown to embellish it. Cover the crown with Distress Stickles. I've also embossed the wings with texture fades embossing folder and ink it with distress ink. Add some Glossy Accents on the embossed images.

I've actually created this tag to go with another altered box. I'll share the altered box in another post soon.

Thank you so much to those of you who had submitted your layouts for the Swirly Challenge sponsored by Swirlydoos. The winner will be announced soon. Keep an eye for it at Swirlydoos blog! Good luck!
