White, Metal & Transport


This week on the DragonsDream TIO blog they have a combination of white, metal and transport.  I really find white difficult and these tags weren't any different.  Above I stamped the TH car in black stazon, masked it off and stamped the map in the background swiping the ink over the stamp.  I added some strips of sticky metal foil after running them through a texture fade, but didn't like it so started to pull it off, some of it stayed stuck so I left it!!  I added a metal corner top left.


Then for my sins, I decided to have another go.  This time I decided on feet as my transport.  I stamped the Paperbag image and TH quote in timber brown stazon and went round the edge in walnut stain distress ink.  I found a couple of appropriate chit chat stickers and outlined them with the ginger Adirondack pen.  I attached a bulb pin with a couple of metal feet charms to the fibres.

Really really like the walking one. White is a difficult colour (is it a colour?) and you've used it really well.

Both look terrific Sam and bits of foil tape you left on add an extra something for sure.

The feet one is fun as well--look the little feet charms

Love Chrissie xx

White is a challenge, you're right! These are both great, though. How clever of you to think of feet as a form of transport. That would never have occurred to me! x Julie Ann
