hello there…. i did a bit of playing after creating my tag for April with some things that were literally laying on my desk.
i had a sheet of tim’s corrgated cardboard (http://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product NULL.aspx?id=315992)on my desk, the Eileen Hull vintage travel tag (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/idea/15439/road-trip-luggage-tag)die, left over handle from one of the vintage travel cases from this project, chitchat stickers and a picture of my son
i ran the cardboard through my vagabond using Eileen’s Starlight (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/product/660337/sizzix-textured-impressions-embossing-folder-starlight)texture fade and once embossed to the outside of the tag i added some brown ink and hit the top edges with black stazon. i then finished it off with a bit of DecoArts (http://decoart NULL.com/mixedmedia/antiquing-creams) antiquing cream in patina green. i then painted the inside piece of my tag using Cobalt Turquoise Hue (http://decoart NULL.com/mixedmedia/fluid-acrylics) and once dried used my Stazon ink once again to hit the highlight
then is was just a matter of putting it all together.
i pop doted the top to the bottom and assembled as below. added a cute little fridge magnet clip and a piece of twine and now i have the perfect framed picture of my son to hang on my file cabinet at work!!
