Gift Tag...Tag You're It Challenge...

Yes...X'mas gift tag.  We have a gift exchange in my company and after balloting I got Hui Gek's name.  I just bought her a gift and started to make her a gift tag immediately once I reached home today.

I used a round blank coaster and paste it with pattern paper, after that I used Penny Black's Snow Smile with versamark and embossed it with Distress Powder to create a weather-worn look...you feel rough when you touch the surface and that is the effect.  Is very suitable to used on this type of brush-stroke image.  For the background I used distress ink to rub it and spray the water on it to make the uneven water mark.  As you know recently I'm so hook on to this type of distress technique... :-)
