Tag Tuesday Challenge #24

This weeks tag challenge from Louise is a tough one... No paper!!
I created two tags but found it so challenging not to use paper.
Every time I went to do something I realized no can't do that...
The tag on the left is the back of a patterned paper pack. The cardboard used to keep the paper from buckling. I used that with some paints from ranger sponged on the background and stamped with versamark and embossed. The edges were touched up with a Krylon gold pen. The stamps are from Tattered Angels (tree), Hero Arts (Sentiment), and Stampers Anonymous (bottom half of tag).
The tag on the right was stamped on aluminum foil with a cardboard backing. I stamped using StazOn and ended up embossing with clear embossing powder. I added the touches of color using the new Smooch paints. I was fortunate enough to be given a few of them by a friend. They didn't dry on the foil very well.
The stamps are from rubber stampede and inkadinkado.
Thanks for stopping by...
