For day 9's challenge.... How high can you go? Today's challenge is to create a dimensional tag. At least two elements must lift up off the page. The edges of the tag should be inked. At least one dimensional flower and 3 buttons should be incorporated in the design.

So for my tag, I decided on a distress technique using the distress powders. (Take a look at http://www.timholtz.com/vid_distresspowders.htm for the technique) I used the embossing ink with Black Soot Distress powder on the tag. I wanted a worn and aged look of the images. I think inked the entire tag with the Aged Mahogany and Scattered Straw distress inks.
I used a combination of Tim Holtz Visual Artistry stamps - Life's Possibilites and Flights of Fancy. I inked the umbrella man with Frayed Burlap and then used clear embossing powder to make it stand out, then pop-dotted the cut out image off the tag along with the layered flower.
To show the Umbrella man lifted offf the page in detail.
