Tracey adores grungy rusty patina and applied these gorgeous colors to her tag featuring the Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Butterfly Die colored with Distress Inks and Embossing Glazes along with her background created with Tim’s Elegant 3D Texture Fade. She used more of the Glazes to color the Lace Baseboard Frame.
