Italian Travel Tag


A third piece for this week's Wwednesday Stamper. This time I used a tag which was sponged with Distress ink in Vintage photo, then stamped with a background stamp using Walnut Stain. Next I stamped 2 Italian images onto fabric using StazOn Black, than dyed the fabric with a little Vintage Photo ink. These were machine stitched onto the tag, as well as a little fabric ruler. I then stamped bare areas with a text stamp in black. Stamped 2 journey tickets and attached them with a bulldog clip. Added a grungeboard arrow, sponged with Vintage Photo. I stamped the word travel, cut up the letters and added it to the grungeboard, then finally adhered some metal letters to spell Italy.
