Enjoy the Journey

September 23, 2008

Another Tuesday has come and there is another challenge over at the Crafty Secret Forum at Splitcoast Stampers. Today's host is Joanne, who has challenged us to make something to reflect the theme of 'going places'.

For this challenge I made a tag using the Journey Stamp collection of Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps. Distressing technique used to make this tag is taken from Tim Hotlz Blog.

First stamped the image of the globe and compass with Broken China on a shipping tag. Then covered the stamped images with clear embossing powder and heat embossed it with a Heat It Craft tool. Distressed the tag with Broken China, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Walnut Stain by using a sponge. Then stamped the images of the ticket, binoculars, plane and sentiment with Black Soot. Covered the tag with a brown paper bag and ran a heated craft iron on the brown paper to remove the embossed parts of the tag. Used a distressing tool along the edges of the tag to further distress it. Inked the edges with Walnut Stain.
