I embossed this tag with "Tim Holtz Distress embossing powder Ranger". After that i distress it with the ink of the same color "broken china". The result of the embossing gave the tag a "sandy beach" texture.
For the cute octopus i used "Tim Holtz Distress Marker seedless preserves Ranger"  and then blend it with water.
