Vintage Madness would be my title for this tag! I have had no problems or worries or cares for that matter pertaining to any of the tags thus far, until today! I did not have any colored paint dabbers. All I have are silver, gold, black, and white. If my husband asks what I want for Christmas, please give him the heads up for colored paint dabbers. I am absolutely worn out. Is that possible? Can a tag cause mental and physical exhaustion? YES!!! I had smooch ink...tons of colors. I tried them and they looked great. They just didn't dry so well! Needless to say, after several hours of drying, reapplying, sanding, scuffing, and inking I had the ugliest thing I have ever created, aside from one of my children in the first minutes after their birth (I'm not naming names). But alas, my tag was saved. Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel came to the rescue and revived the looks of my tag, much the same as those first hours after birth. A little plumping and shining up and all is grand. It does not have the deep color I was going for, but it definitely fills the requirement of vintage looking! I took a plethora of photos because the lighting is dismal given the late hour, but none of them captured the true colors of the tag. Tim makes it look so easy. That's why he is the master and I am the student. Good-bye day 6. I am so looking forward to day 7!!!
