I thought I would try my hand at Tim's tag for June this time around using an image of me when I was around 4 years old. All the products I've used are available from The Stamp Attic.
Distress Ink colours salty ocean which I have to say is a gorgeous
colour. I applied my ink to my non stick craft sheet along with picket
fence Distress Stain
and swiped my tag through the ink and dried with my heat tool. I
repeated this process until I was happy with the coverage and then
spritzed with a little water. I also used a different stamp in the
background to Tim, I decided on the numerals from Wendy's Art Parts stamp set as I thought this was perfect as this tag showcases me at the age of 4.
Distress Marker which worked rather well for tinting my photograph. I then added my photo to a piece of paper from the Lost and Found Paper Stash, ageing with a little vintage photo ink and distressing the edges with the Paper Distresser.
Numerals fastened with long fasteners to secure. Like Tim I also added a Word Band coloured with a little snow cap Paint Dabber. I also love how the Pen Nibs have words engraved and this one has memoirs added.
NEW ribbon that Wendy has in stock, really adds to that vintage feel.
Foliage to one of the flowers from the Lavish Trimmings coloured with the new salty ocean ink.
Film Strip Ribbon has been added to the top of the photograph secured in place with a Gem Clip and for added dimension I also included PHOTO added to jump rings adhered with Glossy Accents.
File Tab again with the number 4 added and for further interest a small star has been added from the Adornments Charms
attached with a jump ring. To add to the vintage feel of the tag I also
blended a little vintage photo ink along the edges of my tag.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
