      I find when I'm making tags with Distress Inks and mists that inevitably the back of my tag ends up looking the worse for wear. When you use one of your tags on a gift, do you write your message on the back, either disregarding the mess or covering it up, or do you put your To's and From's on the front?

      I'm brand new at this but trying to make all my own tags for Christmas. Just got a big box of new Timmy stuff in the mail tonight!

        honey, just go with the flow and stamp a flourish or frame on the back side. I always love the outcome of the backside of the tag, because the beautiful blending of colors. Don't be to hard on yourself!

          or….. for starters…. stamp a flourish on the back with embossing ink and clear embossing powder, then do your tag…once you're finished… if you look at the back side of your tag, you'll have a beautiful resist background.

                  I never even thought to look on the back. Excellent idea Paulien. The back is sometimes my first try side . So often it has a really messed up look. lol. My audience is very forgiving.

                    I didn't ever even consider the back of a tag.

                      What a great idea Paulien. Must remember to try that.

                        Do you write your greeting on the front, then?

                          Ummm, no. LOL!!!! I guess I have only done tags like altered art things, not something to send to someone. I suppose if I sent them out, I would put it on the front, but I love Paulien's idea.

                            That's a great idea, Paulien! Whe I make tags, I usually just glue a blank one to the back so it doesn't look like a mess, but your idea is WAAAAY better!

                              Paulien, thanks for a really great idea. I've been gluing my tags down so that the back doesn't show, but this is far, far better!!!!!!

                                Yes, that is a cool idea!

                                  Am I the only one using them as gift tags (sheepish smile)? I just assumed that was what they were for and went with it.
