World Tour Tag by Alison

Hello Stampers! I have an inky tag to share with you today. And, of course, I've used those fabulous Distress Stains that are on special offer this month HERE, on The Artistic Stamper Website.


First I took a manilla tag, then I stamped various images from the Ephemera Plate all over it, using Coffee Archival Ink. Next, I embossed it using a Texture Fade. I then applied various Distress Stains (scattered straw, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, & vintage photo) all over, spritzed with water to blend the colours together, & dried them with a heat gun.

I stamped the Round The World balloon & a Label on manilla cardstock, using the Coffee Ink, then cut them out. I coloured the label with Vintage Photo Distress Stain, & attached it to my tag with a long fastener, a sprocket gear, & a game spinner.

To finish, I coloured some string with spiced marmalade Distress stain, tied it in a bow around the balloon, pinned a muse token to it, then attached the balloon to my tag.

Thanks for looking,
Alison xx
