Patriotic #4 Tag USA Flag

I like the Tim Holtz Mini Blueprint stamps & decided to use them to make some Clean & Simple CAS Patriotic Tags. This is the 4th in a series of Patriotic Tags.

Used TH Tag die to cut tag.  Used TH Distress Inks barn door & broken china to stamp the USA Flag image. See that I stamped the stars of flag blue & word 'blue' in blue. Used TH Distress Ink barn door & broken china to stamp TH Simple Sayings sentiment. Distressed the edges of tag using TH paper distresser and Distress Ink broken china. Added ribbon.

This is my fav because of the mix of TH Distress Inks used on USA Flag image & sentiment. 

Supplies List

paper - cardstock - white
ribbon: American Collection
Tim Holtz: die - Tag & Die, inks: Distress Inks - barn door, broken china, paper distresser,
