Well it is the 1st of August today and I should still be sailing the high seas - hopefully not high, but nice and smooth with lots of sun! In my dreams …
Today is the start of a brand new challenge at Country View Challenges and Alison has chosen Word Play as our theme. A fabulous theme and lots of possibilities. I chose the written word and the dying art of letter writing as the themes for my tag.
For my background I used the Wrinkle Free Distress technique using Evergreen Bough and Vintage Photo, keeping the former to the middle of the tag.
I over stamped some text with Vintage Photo and then VERY bravely used a little Alphabet Stamp set to stamp my sentiment directly on to the tag. I still felt it needed a little more, so I blended Evergreen Bough through the Tim Holtz Splatters Mask and was quite pleased with the overall effect!
I do love the mini quill and ink pen die set - it takes very little to make it look effective!
Finally, a little letter in an envelope and a little of the wax I bought in Rome last year to complete the little collage.
I hope you will join us in our challenge this month and hop over to the Country View Challenges blog to view the rest of the Design Team projects for today - fabulous inspiration from everyone! And remember that there is a post every other day from Guests and DT members.
