Travel


This is my contribution to the theme Travel. This week there are 2 challenges on this theme. Firstly "Simon Says Stamp and Show" and secondly "Tag it On"

I have wanted a sneaker stamp for sometime but have never found one, so I was delighted when the new papers from 7 Gypsies called Off the Wall came out. There was no question I just had to have them.

I combined the paper with stamping. The harlequins, both the word stamps and birds in flight - all stamps by Tim Holtz.

I constructed an alternative tag hanger for the piece which I am rather pleased with. Also the distressing on the label went well and ended up looking like very worn old leather with a feel that is not dissimilar.

Thanks for looking.

Yes Laura( to answer your question about the wire ribbon), I just cut it & pull it into shape. It's very soft, but you can use hairspray to make it 'stay' I believe.Don't hang anything too heavy off it though or you lose the shape.:O) HTH Viv xx
