Lots to Do Challenge

Distressed tags are the theme for this week's challenge at Lots To Do. My tag background began as a crumpled tag with the wrinkles inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. After a water spritz and ironing flat, I added paper scraps of German text and music, distressed those with applying masking tape and pulling it off to make the text more indistinct, then finally added dry brushed ivory paint. Oh, and the tag edges were distressed with a paper distresser. How's that for distressing! My image is from Paper Whimsy.
