These 3 tags use the batik tag technique explained by Tim Holtz on his blog. I used a selection of his stamps, my bird stamps and a couple of others from other sources.
Basically, each tag is stamped in a pale distress ink colour and then clear embossed. Using cut'n'dry foam, the tag is inked with darker distress inks, with the embossing acting as a resist.
Brown paper or newsprint is then placed over the embossing, and it is ironed with a hot iron until the embossing powder melts again and is soaked into the brown paper.
Finally, other images were stamped onto the tag, the edges were distressed by filing them and then applying walnut distress ink.
