Over at Scraps of Darkness we have a Tag Swap going.
This is for Ms. Karen. I've seen mine and cannot wait to get it!
I specifically created it with the challenge in mind going on at The Flying Unicorn.
Here are a few close ups:

The flourish peeking out under the keys cut from cardstock from PAPER TEMPTRESS.

|Can't have too many keys|
Here's the final pic of the completed tag:
I used several pieces of my papers from PAPER TEMPTRESS. In the top right corner is a flourish I cut using the Lustre paper. For the keys I used Heavenly White 80#, and for the leaves I used from the Basis Cardstock green. I embossed them with different types of powders.. I tried the Tim Holtz Embossing Puffs and it was ok... I like the black gloss look better.. it turned my paper some weird ashy look. I still love my CTMH embossing powders.. I have yet to find a better powder.

I used several of my 3rd Eye stamps: BRICK WALL TES-080 I used for the basis of my tag; For my leaves I used the BRAID stamp and cut it up TES-019; I was inspired by a post on the 3rd Eye blog which you can see here Click here; I used the KEY stamp TES-028; I loved stamping them in multiple colors; I stamped the Cogs 3 set on the outer portion of the little envelope TES-090.

I used the following Distress Inks: Black Soot, Walnut Stain, Antique Linen, Peeled Paint, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Seedless preserves.
CTMH embossing powders and their ink Autumn Terracotta.
