Stamping and Distressing Fun

I guess I have been in a stamping mood lately. The challenge for this week was to use the #3 or 3 somewhere. So I did just that on this little tag that I created for the Party Time Tuesdays Challenge. The stamps came from There She Goes Stamps, which let me just tell you are some of the best clear stamps I have ever used. With these stamps you get a clear stamp each time you use them and the quality of the stamp is fantastic so I had a ton of fun using these stamps.

The first thing I did was cut out a tag with my trusty Cricut and the doodletype cartridge. I cut my tag at 5 inches because I wanted a lot of space to work with. The next thing I did was distress my tag! I used three different Tim Holtz distress pads to get the look of the ocean on my tag! I then spritzed the tag with water and dried it with my heat gun. Then this is where my #3 challenge came into play. The little coral and ocean bushes I stamped in a pattern on the bottom of the tag! My next step was to stamp the fishes and the sentiment Best Fishes on to my stamp along with the little bubbles.
