IndigoBlu Challenge #27 - Just One Layer - Demonstrator Inspiration

Hi folks, welcome to challenge #27 of the IndigoBlu challenge this months theme is 'Just One Layer'. I loved doing this challenge as I try to do many creations using just one layer, particularly the creations I am sending out via post. 
It's all about creating the illusion of multiple layers on one flat surface by creating textures and using different mediums to create levels.

For this challenge I decided to create a tag rather than a card and chose a size #10 tag as it's huge!!
I used an oldie but a goody IndigoBlu stamp. It's definitely one of my 'go to' stamps as I just love it. It's the Itsy Bitsy Backgrounds stamp set which has four different textures to create a grungy background to any project. 

I decided my colour palette would be blue/green with a touch of yellow. I went directly to my Distress Inks as which ever colours I intend to pick they always blend so naturally. I used Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers, Iced Spruce, Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey Distress Inks for my background and to stamp with.

I used IndigoBlu Peony Dinkie Stamp, the small flowers from the IndigoBlu Giant Peony Stamp Set and the sentiment from the IndigoBlu Becca Stamp Set. I stamped using Versamark ink and heat embossed using jet black embossing powder. 

I inked a huge length of wide organza ribbon with the Distress Inks and punched a couple of holes in the tag to tie a bow. 

Hope you enjoyed my creation for this months challenge.
