Happy Saturday Peeps, It is time for another new challenge on Our Creative Corner.
This week Anita Houston has a fun "Spring Break" Challenge for us:
Spring has sprung yet again!
It's time to take that annual well deserved vacation.
Where would your postcard come from?
Make whatever you like and show us your "spring break vacation destination".
Remember to include the name of your destination somewhere on your project.
I didn't have any stamps I thought would work for this until I went rummaging around into some of my non SU stamps and came across this Eiffel Tower stamp and it had "Paris" on it so it was perfect for this.
Altho I will probably will never go to Paris, cos I can't even bring myself to get on an airplane, in a "perfect" world I would have already been there. :)
I decided to make a vintage tag, keep it simple.
I did use a few Stampin Up stamps, the BG uses French Foliage, Creative Elements and Elementary Elegance.
I stamped and sponged with Crumb Cake ink.
I sponged in a splash of color using some Baja Breeze.
The Eiffel Tower element was stamped onto a scrap and cut out and added to the tag with some dimesionals.
I stamped the birds from the Elementary Elegance stamp set with Soft Suede ink and added just a hint of blushing bride by stamping a couple of flowers from the Creative Elements stamp set, can you see them?
The sentiment is from the same set and is stamped onto a scrap piece of confetti cream with soft suede ink.
I added a bit of baja ruffled ribbon under the sentiment flag. The bow at the top is made with baja breeze seam binding ribbon and I used an antique brad in the center.
I distressed the edges of the tag with my distressing tool.
