Weathered Wood Distress Ink, so I created my background using Tim's rusted enamel technique which always produces a great effect. I also used a bit of Broken China too. Just make sure your ink pad is nice and juicy when inking up your tag before you scatter on the embossing powder so it can cling well to the ink. Also use ordinary embossing powder, not extra fine or thick for the best result and texture.
Grungepaper roses are created used the great die from Paper Artsy. I used three flowers for each rose. I cut them out, inked them up in Weathered Wood and then thought a few dots would give a bit of texture so I embossed them with this dotty folder. Then I lightly swiped the surface and edges with my blending tool which had a little Walnut Stain left on it.
I also cut three Grungepaper leaves which are similar to these dies. You can never have enough flower and leaf dies! Whilst the flowers were drying I went digging in my Idea-ology tray and found some ball chain, a number and my Chit Chat stickers and thought of the Three Little Wishes idea. The wishes was stamped with my ever faithful peg stamps. I bashed up the number a little and added drops of pool and Espresso Alcohol ink to give it that aged look.

butterfly on my desk from last weeks project so I thought I would give it a good home after a bit of ink and Rock Candy Crackle paint! Then, I knew I was done...
