Time Travel Tag by Alison

Hello Stampers! Today I have a bright tag to share with you.


To make my background, I spritzed Pure Sunshine, Squeezed Orange, & Bubblegum Pink Dylusion Ink Sprays onto my craft sheet. I laid a manilla tag in the ink, dried it with a heat tool, then repeated this process, dipping the tag in the ink then drying, until I had the desired effect.

I stamped Calligraphic Mat No.9, using frayed burlap Distress Ink, then stamped the large & small corners from Architecture Plates 1 & 3, in the corners, using coffee Archival ink. I inked the edges of the tag with the coffee Archival

I stamped the window from Architecture 3 onto book paper, using coffee Archival ink, then tore around the image. I inked it with vintage photo Distress ink, then glued it to my tag.

Next, I stamped the Journaling Mini Words onto cream paper, cut out the required words for the phrase, inked the edges, & attached them to my tag. I sprayed the Squeezed Orange ink into the air above the tag, to let a subtle colour fall onto the words & image.

To finish, I coloured some blush sari ribbon with the Dylusion inks, tied one piece through the top, & layered a piece with some cream lace at the bottom, then attached a tiny gold key charm with a jump ring.

Thanks for looking,
Alison xox
