Today finally my prize from Sizzix arrived.
It is a wonderful die with numbers
that I think goes great with my word play die.
Now to come up with some fun designs.
Thank you so much Sizzix
for picking me!
Of course I had to look on the Sizzix Blog
and I noticed the wonderful Bon Voyage tag
by Tammy Tutterow and this
inspired me to make the following
tag with my new Tim Holtz stamps.
As I am of to the US end of this year
I thought it would be fun to have the
airplaine stamps to use for my scrapbook.
But of course I had to play with it now.
Starting with the background I show
you how I build this tag.
As the airplain is up in the clouds,
I cut out a cloud from a piece of paper and
used this as a mask to make this background
with broken china and a blender tool.
When done I took my swirls embossing folder
and run tag and folder through the Vagabond.
This is how it looks when finsished.
Of course I distressed the outside and added
'some more broken chine with my blender tool.
Then I used my stamps and
cut them out with scissors and used some vintage photo
distress ink around it. The airplain I colored with
a silver gelpen. Also I found some of my US boarding
passes from one of my previous trips and used it for this tag.
As I have some boarding passes left,
I sure going to use them for some future art.
This is the top of the tag with a chain instead of
a ribbon to give it more of a luggage tag look
and a token hanging from this. I choose the one with wander
written on it. No explanation needed I guess.
Her the bottom part of the tag with everything
coming together in a collage kind of way.
The text was printed on kraft paper, cut out and
distressed. On the compass I added one
of the game spinners from the idea-ology collection.
Have a creative day!
