Tag Card by Sioux Jenneys

It's Saturday! And I'm sharing a card today :)

1. Started with a small tag and arranged 3 words from the Ephemera #1 plate on a block and stamped them in Archival Sepia varying the direction.

2. Colourised the tag all over with Distess Ink tea dye using an ink blending tool and then stamped the new fabulously useful and ever so cool ;) Marbled background stamp in weathered wood.

3. Could not wait to use one of the other fabulous new releases the Round the World and stamped it three times...

...once onto a piece of acetate packaging in Stazon

(I could have stamped it directly on the card but this way it gives me the ability to move the image around later till it is in just the right place)

...once onto plain white card in Archival black

...once onto one of the backgrounds I made for the monthly challenge but did not use which had the houndstooth background stamped in Archival crimson.

4. Cut out the world and colourised the houndstooth background with Distress Ink worn lipstick...
...cut out the basket from the white card and use your chosen medium to colour in...
...cut out the middle rope portion on the acetate layer including some of the globe and some of the basket to attach the previous pieces to.

5. Tatter the edges of the tag and inked with Distress Ink vintage photo and stamped the phrase from the new Travelling Words in Archival crimson then over stamped it in black.

(mainly because the crimson did not show up too well but I like the effect it gives!!! LOL)

6. Attached the globe parts with glossy accents and added some fibres.

(similar ones can be found here).

7. Used the new Europe map background (another new favourite ;)) stamped in Archival coffee and colourised with Distress Ink old paper and spritzed some crushed olive mix from a mini mister and some dried marigold too.

Tattered the edges and inked with a mixture of Distress Ink vintage photo and aged mahogany then attached to a gold coloured base card (A6)...add the tag on top along with your sentiment of choice and it's finished ;)

Thanks for looking and see you again soon!
xoxo Sioux
