Vintage Tag using Andy Skinner new release Stamps from Illusionary Artists and Stampendous

Morning all I have a tag to share with you today using one of Andy Skinners new release stamp sets from Stampendous and the new Illusionary Artists stamp set Word Up and Numbers. I  used the Textures set to create this grungy background for my tag along with the DecoArt Media Line of Fluid Acrylics and some Stampendous Embossing powders. I wanted to evoke the feel of a distressed plastered wall for my background which would fit perfectly with the textures stamps and I think I achieved the look I was after and am quite pleased how it turned out.
I created the background by first applying DecoArt Media Tinting Base to a tag die cut from greyboard.  I then brayered on the DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic colours until I achieved the look I was after. The textures set was then stamped onto the background using Watering Can Archival Ink. Two hearts were then die cut from greyboard and given the triple embossing technique then stamped into using Andy's Textures stamp set. I assembled the hearts together included some rusty wire and a rusty heart to finish and attached to the tag base. Fig x14 from the word up and numbers set from Illusionary Artists was stamped onto a piece of craft cardstock, trimmed and attached to the tag to complete.
