SoSS Challenge #2 - U is for Unused

It's Saturday!!! YAY!!! Time for another Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge!!! This week's challenge is brought to you by the letter U...and U is for Unused. We want you to dig deep into your stash and use something that you haven't ever used before, or something that you've had for so long that you've forgotten about it.

Be sure to visit the blog for all the details on the challenge and to show my snarky sisters some crafty love.

I have soooooo much unused stuff in my craft room, it was hard to know where to start. I have a whole pack of unused kraft I started with one of those.

I started with Gesso and the Tim Holtz eye chart stencil, then used acrylic paints over top to colour the background. I distressed the edges of the tag, I wanted some of that nice kraft to show through. Then I added my embellishments (including a little blue bling that I got for my birthday), some frayed twine for the top and ta da...stash enhanced tag!
