Chunky Vintage Car Tag - Crafty Individuals

This tag for Crafty Individuals is another collage tag this time using the Chunky Vintage Car Tag (CI 405) which is one of the newest arrivals at the CI shop. I have displayed it along with (CI-408) Ornamental Wishes, which is also a brand new image released very recently.
P1150882
The image was stamped in Watering Can and watercoloured with evergreen bough, bundled sage, black soot, pumice stone and frayed burlap distress inks.
P1150886
The Wishes image was first stamped with antique linen distress paint, when dry it was dipped in the above distress inks and then blended over with evergreen bough and iced spruce DI. The sentiment didn’t show up as much as I wanted so I went over it with white posca pen.
P1150888
The black background tag was stamped with a CI swirl stamp in embossing ink and covered with clear EP and heated. When cool I brayered evergreen bough and antique linen distress paints over and dried. Then I stamped another new release – Medieval Manuscript (CI – 406) in picket fence distress paint and again heat dried it. This gave the background a more mottled effect than I was expecting, but I love it anyway.
P1150806
I gathered some CI tickets to use as ephemera to join the images together.
P1150885
The backing paper is a My Mind’s Eye lost and found 12 x 12 paper cut down to DL size.
P1150804
So that’s the second tag made into a card with the new stamps from CI. They are gorgeous vintage designs., do pop over and take a look.

I hope your week is going well.

Brenda - your creativity and attention to detail always blows me away. I usually pick a thing that I like best on a piece - this time I cant - I absolutely love all all all of it. These colours work so well together too.

Totally brilliant Brenda, wow I now absolutely "need" those stamps! ! Stunning collage and I love that DL format, it looks fantastic. Going over the stamped design with the Posca pen is a very clever touch, it really makes it pop!!
