TIO#93 - "Travel - Make a Getaway"

I can't believe how quickly this month has flown by. Here we are nearing the end of August. Just one more challenge then that's August put to bed.

I wasn't too sure which stamps to use for this challenge, set by our leader, Frankie, then decided upon a set called Vanezia by Ruber Stamp Concepts. It is the first time  I have used this set. I think it will be getting quick a few airings! We are blown away by the talent and creativity we are seeing in your entries to the TIO challenge. You keep coming up trumps week after week. Anyhooo, back to my design team entry.

TIO #93 = "Travel - Make a Getaway"

The tag was coloured with Eco paints, using Sheena's crackle technique. I then swiped over it with broken china distress stain.  Once this was dry I set to work with my stamps, Rubber stamp Concepts - Venezia, Creative Expressions - Tickets, and Crafty Individuals C1-307, and stazon inks in smokey grey and black.

I also stamped onto acetate with one of the images from the Venezia set and then adhered guilding flakes, Autumn Rose, on the reverse. I also stamped the work "Venezia" in the same way. Both were adhered to my tag.

I then stapled two tickets onto the tag. and two moulds made with ultra-tick EP and bronze and rose ep. Finally, I added ribbons from my stash along with a little bronze key, also from my stash.

I'm sure if you pop over to the TIO challenge blog you will be suitably inspired by the varied samples by my talented fellow design team buddies. Go on, give it a go, you know you want to. Frankie is speaking of making a sampler from this weeks entries. You might just be in it.

Thanks for stopping by. I love to read your comments.
