Ok..... I've been gone for far too long. Work has really gotten in the way of my playtime.
A scrapper friend , Stampin' Dymonz, opened up a studio for hosting crops and hanging out with friends in Baltimore, MD a year ago. This is the anniversary of the Scrapshack. So in honor of this anniversary, she has created a great challenge which is right up my alley......... Nostalgic tags , ala Tim Holtz style. The grand prize is a brand new Tim Holtz Vagabond. Now who wouldn't want one of those puppies!! Me, me, me!
So, for my tag I use a shipping tag and inked it with Tim Holtz Distress Embossing ink using a Travelogue stamp from TPC Studios and overlayed it with Distress Vintage Photo Embossing Powder. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo and Faded Jeans Distress inks. I tore a piece of paper from the Retro Grunge stack and inked the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink, stamped part of another stamp (RAVEL) in Fired Brick ink. I added a little piece of ribbon to the bottom of the tag.
I love the gritty feel of this tag. It will go quite well in a travelogue scrapbook that I'm working on. You can find the challenge site by going here: http://www.stampindymonz.com/2011/04/tim-times-ten-grand-give-way-challenge.html .
