Wild Tag

Howdy Crafters - this is a technique I learned this week using Heat embossing and painters tape - the original idea was painter tape to make the straight lines on an angle across the tag, but in this tag, I mixed things up a bit--- not only with the use of Painters Tape but the sponging of colors - thanks for stopping by ~  blessing, Gail
