Honor and Glory Vintage Tag

Today I made an attempt to get inky! When doing a blog hop I viewed a creation where a crafter took Distressed inks and swiped them across the tag.  I liked the look so I decided I would give it a try.
I did some stamping of inks on the recycled cardboard & then rubbing Distress Inks of various colors across the tag. 
I also did GOLD embossing of the Castle stamp on the tag, which did not turn out as well as I would have liked. However, I like the gold embossing at the bottom of the tag. 
I stamped the Castle on Torn and Wrinkled Kraft Cardstock and placed it on the tag with a bit of pop up tape.
I am liking this inky crafting. Thanks for dropping by and enjoy your day!
