If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!! I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was. I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!
I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)
As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.
|IndigoBlu Pomp and Pageantry Tag|
For the rest of the stamping I used black archival ink and then mounted the raised pieces (gentleman and longer word) on foam tape to add some dimension to the finished tag. I used glossy accents to highlight the word eccentric and after dying the IndigoBlu vintage seam binding with antique linen distress ink I used the same stamp to stamp the wording on the binding. To finish I mounted the tag on a black background cut down to 1/16" with my perfect border rulers from create and craft.(I love them!!)

I embossed the second tag with one of the Tim Holtz texture fades before inking it with Lemonade adirondak ink. I over inked that with vintage photo distress ink catching the top of the embossed areas to make them stand out. I also highlighted the middle of the embossed area with clover adirondak ink, and added the background flourishes and the word TRAVEL using coffee archival ink.
Then I stamped the man with glasses and two tickets with the same coffee ink, and cut out the images. I highlighted the glasses with jade art glitter and used glossy accents to add a frame to the cut out. Once dry I scrunched up the tickets to give them a used look, and added them to the tag followed by the image of the man which I raised up on foam tape. The sentiment was stamped with black archival ink, cut out, and edged with a vintage photo distress ink pen before I added them to the tag. To finish I coloured some vintage seam binding with vintage photo distress ink, stamped on it with black archival ink and tied it onto the tag. Lastly I mounted the tag on black card cutting it down to a 1/16" border.
Have a great weekend whatever you have planned :-)
