Experiment with Distress Oxide Sprays and Distress Archival Inks on a Tag

I often use a tag to try out new products and techniques.  As one of the prompts on this month's challenge over on Tag It Tuesday is 'Use Spray Inks', I decided to try out a couple of the new Distress Oxide sprays.  Each month there are four prompts and at least two have to be used.  The additional prompts this month were 'Put a leaf on it', 'Draw, paint or write using your non dominant hand' and 'Green'.  I used all four prompts.

WOYWW 511: On My Lonesome

Welcome to yet another Wednesday sharing my desk with fellow fans of What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW).  Julia has been keeping deskers from all around the world in order for nearly 10 years.  New deskers are welcome at any time, so please join us over on The Stamping Ground where Mr Linky is waiting for you.
I thought I'd take a photo from a slightly different angle this week.  As you can see, there was no action taking place on the other side of the desk as Eva was not able to come and craft with me yesterday.  For once I did actually have something on my desk which I can share, as I am between samples at the moment.  I thought it was about time that I tried out some of the new Distress Oxide sprays so grabbed a tag and made a start.
This is how it finished up.  I'll be sharing the step by step tomorrow, so please feel free to pop back if you want to see how it came together.  I'll be popping in to visit desks this evening after work.  Tomorrow I am heading up to Stockport for a get together with Lou Withers and other crafty friends at Hobbycraft.  It is December since we last managed to coordinate our calendars, so I am really looking forward to it.  Happy WOYWW.

This is the first of my samples for the new 3 way overlay stamps being launched on Hochanda at 12pm today (live from the NEC).  The matching stencils and dies are already available.
