The theme for the Tag Tuesday challenge blog is VINTAGE.
Vintage is easy when any of the Tim Holtz paper dolls are involved.
I started this tag by die cutting the tag shape from digital printable paper I purchased from Etsy. I stenciled a brick wall with Transparent Texture paste tinted with Distress Oxide Spray Antique Linen. It didn’t show as well as I hoped it would so I lightly blended over the bricks with Archival ink Potting Soil. That was more the look I was after.
I then die cut another tag shape from a sturdier paper, 98lb Canson Mix Media to sandwich the printed papers onto. I then added my ephemera pieces and inked around the outside edges.
I didn’t need to do much on the back as the paper was doing all the work for me. I just added some text with a favorite ‘Curiosity’ stamp and the date. I also stamped the same text on the seam binding.
Vintage and grunge are a favorite style of tag for me.
This tag challenge runs through Monday the 12th of July. Come join in the fun.
