  11. Karen, your tag is one of my favorites this challenge. I seldom use a "vintage patina" on my projects, but your tag is magnificent! (If I could make paper look that good, it would be all over my creations.) What did you use the pen on...darkening the corners? This really looks like it's one hundred years old. I can't begin to sort out whats original to the piece, and what you've added. I'm Pinning this because the embellishment is one of the best "male" ones I've ever seen. All this beauty, and still your two grandsons are the stars of the show. Thanks so much for choosing to share.

  12. Hi Marcie, Thanks so much! I started with a white postcard that I altered with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink. After that dryed I used the TN2 pen and ran that over the entire card to give it a lighter color and I love how it turned out
