Distressed Tag

To make this lovely tag you will need the following items:

- tag
-distress ink by Ranger
-distress ink applicator
-spray bottle/mini mister by Ranger

To start, cover the tag in distress ink. For the tag above I used the colour vintage photo. To achieve the watermark look follow the next few steps:

Fill the spray bottle/mini mister with plain water.
Spray the tag lightly.
You will start to see the distress ink bleed away from the wet areas.
Let dry.

If you desire a distressed edge do the following:

Swipe your ink pad along the edge of the tag.
Open your scissors as if about to curl ribbon.
Run scissors along the edge to fray the edge as much as you would like.

And there you have it, a simple watermark distressed tag.
