Chunky Vintage Telephone Tag for Crafty Individuals

A tag card from me today made for Crafty Individuals using one of their brand new releases.

The cream tag was layered with distress inks (antique linen, vintage photo and frayed burlap) using the wrinkle free technique and heat dried. I then used several different masks to blend some of the above distress inks through to create a layered background. I wanted to use different numbers to go with the telephone theme.
The main image was stamped in black archival on cream card and dipped in iced spruce, frayed burlap and pumice stone distress inks.
I found an a very old bingo card number, made of heavy card, and distressed it, a tiny pocket and tag that also had the distressing treatment and stamped and found some small numbers on various CI stamps to cut up and use to help give a balanced composition.
The quote on the tag was computer generated, printed off and distressed before adhering to the tag.
There are some more of these vintage images in the new CI release, so watch this space as they say.

Have a great day.
