Distress, no mess! Happy Thanksgiving!

It looks like another "get your hands messy" kind of day! I decided to create this tag to add to the planter that will sit at my Thanksgiving table using lots of Want2Scrap™ products .

A few details...

This is what you will need:
Distress ink or stains
Spray ink
Faber-Castrell Gelatos
Tag, water, paintbrush

I started off staining both the cardboard and Nestaboard™

Now add a little paint to the edges and can use a brush or just a finger.

Now used distress inks to distress the edges of your materials.

Use the spray inks to distress your tag.

Color the envelope with gelatos and add a little water to them to spread. It brings on a water color type of look.

Hope you are enjoying your holiday and find time to get a little messy yourself!
