Tag #2 and #3

Go check out Jenn's blog and see her blog candy! She is an awesome designer and if you haven't visited her blog you will enjoy the visit! All her work is gorgeous!

Two more tags started from one inked background... I used the broken china and shabby shutters ranger distress ink. I smeared them on individually added lots of spritzes of water and then used my finger to stir it up to make blobs of ink. Drag the tag or paper through the ink and do the same for the other color.

The second tag was created because of the first tag being truncated. :) As always while experimenting I made a mistake and ended up creating a short tag.
