SplodgeAway Mat, Distress Inks and a Personal Impressions stamp

This Tag was so quick to make.
Distress inks, a blending tool and a SplodgeAway Mat.
It's my DT sample for the SplodgeAway Blog.
I'm finding that blending distress inks is so much quicker
 and easier when I use a SplodgeAway Mat.
After blending Lemonade, Mustard Seed
Pale Lilac and Seedless Preserves together.
 I splashed some water over the tag and dried it with a heat gun.
 The edges were inked with a little Vintage Photo and
the leaves are painted with Distress Stains.
I also added some 'dots' with a white Uni Posca pen.
The stamp is from Personal Impressions and is called 'P890M'.
My smaller, sentiment stamp comes from the Hero Arts range.
I really enjoyed making the Tag.
  I 'plonked' Sepia Glossy Accents onto the berries as a final touch!
Thanks for looking today and for all the lovely comments.
Keep warm, stay safe and carry on crafting!
