 I used distress paint to create this tag- and i am offically addicted!!!  I love paint the chipboard , I can also mix the paint with molding paste and it still holds it bright brillant color.
So i used Crushed olive, pumice stone, wild honey, evergreen bourgh and dusty concord.

i painted the brick chipboard with crushed olive and wild honey, allow to dry

i mixed molding paste with pumice stone distress paint . I applied the molding paste to the tag using a palette knife
 next layered the dry painted bricks on to the molding paste, leaving the center of the tag empty.  I love of the look of molding paste pushed up between the bricks- looks just like an actual brick wall

 finished the brick all along the outside and top and bottom, allow to dry- this takes quite awhile
trim the bricks the tag edges, i then sanded the bricks and inked with distress ink- pumice stone.  Again LOVE the effect this created.  I also inked the inside of the tag with pumice stone where there is no brick
 then i flipped over and inked the back of the tag
 i punched out the inside of the tag then inked front and back of rip with walnut ink

i painted the gears with evergreen bourgh, allowed to dry and sanded

 I layered the gears behind and in front of rip-  added the painted chevron to the front
finished tag- i added painted chipboard filmstrip in the background.

Now i am out of brick chipboard so i am going to have to buy some more because i need to do this again!

THIS IS MY FAVORITE- until the next one!
