Bon Voyage Tag

Hello friends! I hope you're having a creative weekend! 
I'd like to share a quick tag with you all today. 

Start with a #8 Kraft tag and cover the tag with Picket Fence Distress Stain. This will create a chalky appearance. If you want a super chalky look apply another coat and let dry.

 Using Jet Black Archival ink stamp the big Ship first then the background and Bon Voyage with The Artful Voyage set from Stampers Anonymous, Tim Holtz collection. Let dry. 

Color the Ship using an Ink Blending tool and Distress ink in Broken China and Fired Brick. I also inked the edge of the tag with Walnut Stain Distress ink on an Ink Blending tool. Next color some Crinkle Ribbon for the top of the tag with a little Distress ink in Faded Jeans and Brocken China applied directly to the Craft Sheet spritz the ink with a little water and then wipe up the colors with the Crinkle Ribbon. Dry the ribbon with a Heat Tool and crinkle the ribbon as it dries.

Bon Voyage to all my friends headed to CHA in Chicago, travel safe. I hope the show goes well for everyone! I can't wait to see all the new products to play with.
