Two challenges from April

This was for a challenge to cover a light switch plate.
I made it for my studio, so it had to say Art on it. I uses some tag art from Hot Off the Press.

This tag was created for an Earth Day challenge. I used recycled hardware (found and rusted) along with a Tim Holtz gear.
I first embossed my tag with a gear embossing folder, using my Vagabond. Notice how deep the embossing is. I don't get this results in my Cuttlebug. Then I used three shades of distress ink. I also used distress ink to dye my ribbon. Some of the art work used here is from Graphic 45 and some is from public domain.
