Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge - Create a Tag or Have a Tag on your project

Well I'm back with another card or should I say Tag... This week's challenge at Loves Rubberstamps is to create a tag or have tag on your project. I decided to do a tag. I started off using a manilla tag that I cut out using Tim Holtz sizzix die called Tag & Bookplate. I then ran it thru and embossing folder called Roses & Frame. Tim Holtz has vidoe out that shows you how to cut a slit in the top of your embossing folder so that you can emboss the bottom part of your tag. I then took out my Tim Holtz distress inks using the following colors; Gathered Twigs, Mowed Lawn and Festived Berries to add color.  You find these inks in Laura's store here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_248/Tim-Holtz-Distress-Ink-Pads-from-Ranger-Ink.htm  Then I flicked water droplets over the tag so the inks would react. Our sponsor this week for the challenge is QKR and so I chose this rose and printed it out twice. I colored them using my Prismacolor pencils. I then my Versamark ink pad and laid some ink down on the top of the tag and some at the bottom. I took some  Aged Scarlet Embossing Enamel by Stampendous and sprinkled it on top embossing ink and heated from below while it was still warm added the Red Glass Glitter so that it would melt into the embossing powder. I found  this metal 'smile' and this metal rose in my stash that I found at Michael's  which was colored using Tim Holtz alcohol inks.
