Rocket Man – Vintage Themed Tag

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all in fine fettle and that the week has started well for you.
Thank you to everyone for your visits and for your comments on my last posts.  It was also lovely to hear from old friends.

Today, I would like to share another vintage tag created for Crafty Individuals.

Very simple to create.

The base of the tag is a piece of 350g water colour paper.
I dabbed some Distress Inks onto an acrylic block, spritzed the ink with water and swished the tag around in the ink.  I dried the first coat off with a heat gun and then repeated the process until I was happy with the colours.
I masked off the Discovery Ship stamp with post it notes so that only the ship image was showing and then inked it up with brown Archival Ink, removed the post it notes and stamped the image.
I repeat stamped the John Masefield’s poem/script at the top and at the bottom of the tag again using Archival Ink.
I coloured a small scrap of card with Diluted Distress inks (as above), stamped the navigational elements image and used a paper punch to cut out the little tag.
I cut the images down to size and attached them and the small tag using foam tabs as seen.
