I created this for today's Ways to use it challenge on Splitcoast, Just Spray it. I chose to use Tsukineko Walnut Ink Crystals dissolved in water to spray on my tag. The images, inks and crystals are all available from
Rubbernecker Stamp Co. I stamped the images using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Black Soot and then spritzed with the walnut ink crystal solution. When that dried, I sponged with TH Tattered Rose and Weathered Wood. Edges were DTP'd with Vintage photo and sponged with Walnut Stain. The word Art was stamped in Vintage photo. The blue card was stamped with Latin Word background in Brushed Corduroy that was stamped off once. The card front is cut down 3/4" and a strip of brown cardstock is attached to the inside and decorative trim attached. Fibers were added to the shipping tag.


  1. You have such a fabulous style, love it and love the decorative trim!!

    This is one geogeous tag/card!! I'm in love with this whole style!

  3. I love how your cards are so classic, antique looking....I'm not sure how to describe it, but I know I love it. I like the beads and coins that you have added to this. Joan

  4. Fantastic work, Shelly! I love that trim down the right side!
