Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Anything but a Card

This week, Jane has chosen the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, which is:

'Anything but a Card'

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

The prize is a $15 voucher from Heather's Hobbie Haven!

I've made a tag...and started by inking a manilla tag using Distress Inks (Bundled Sage, Evergreen Bough, Stormy Sky & Faded Jeans), then splashed it with some water. I stamped my Hero Arts music background in Pumice Stone...having removed some of the ink to create a distressed effect, then stamped my Penny Black 'Constellations' several times, and a Hero Arts sentiment in Memento 'Rich Cocoa' over the top. I inked around the edges using 'Brushed Corduroy', before spritzing a gold Cosmic Shimmer over the top, and adding some seambinding ribbon (from the Ribbon Girls).


I'm also entering this tag into the following challenges:
