As I love the resist techniques, because they beautifully "save" the background done before working over it as many times as you like, I just had to submit to this challenge and I am going to enter this tag to it. I also enter this tag to the challenge at "Try it on Tuesday", where "Travel" is called for.
I first inked the tag, cut from a single tone soft creamy coloured paper, with distress inks "spiced marmalade", "rusty hinge", "vintage photo" and "pumice stone" using the blending tool. Afterwards I sprinkled the surface with water to get the stainy look I love so much. When this had dried, I stamped the two hotel signs and the airplane with embossing ink and embossed the images with clear super fine embossing powder from Ranger.
After that step I added some more distress inks - especially to the areas, where I had stamped the images - to highten the contrast. I also added some texture by stamping the whole tag with maps and text. The "enjoy the journey"-quote is stamped onto a brown paperbag scrap, torn out and afterwards glued onto the tag. Finally I added the picture of the old airplane at the left top corner and the balloon, softly fading in the background of the airplane done in resist technique. The lace ribbon gives the whole thing some ground to stand on as I see it. Simple natural cord for the top - walah!
Here are some more close-ups!
Hope you enjoyed stopping by! Hugs, die amelie xx
