Travel Tag


I didn't really have any idea where this was going, but this is how it's ended up!!! I painted the tag with sand eco friendly paint, stamped it in various colours of script and inked over it with shabby shutters and crushed olive distress ink.  I inked the edges in walnut stain. I used lots of various inks in green, orange and brown for the background of the main piece, I applied them with a baby wipe and then stamped  randomly.  I stamped the main image with timber stazon, and then restamped part of it on another piece of card which I'd coloured with walnut stain and peeled paint distress inks and used 3d foam pads to raise it.  I stamped a suitcase and tag which I cut out and attached with 3d foam pads. Added a piece of lace, an eyelet and some string to the tags.

Ooh, I like this, Sam. Very subtle but lots of bits of colour on there and really nicely collaged. Lovely work.
