Tag Swap Time

Happy June.
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:

My 3rd Eye Stamps shining

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

Loved using my cogs

Can't have too many keys
The keys were on Heavenly white 80# cardstock from PAPER TEMPTRESS.
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. To check out all the amazing stamps available from 3rd Eye click here.
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.

Thank you for dropping by.
Happy Scrappn!
