MEMORIES

I thought I would try my hand at Tim's tag for June this time around using an image of  me when I was around 4 years old. All the products I've used are available from The Stamp Attic.
I did my background a little differently to Tim's and used one of the NEW Distress Ink colours salty ocean which I have to say is a gorgeous colour.  I applied my ink to my non stick craft sheet along with picket fence Distress Stain and swiped my tag through the ink and dried with my heat tool.  I repeated this process until I was happy with the coverage and then spritzed with a little water. I also used a different stamp in the background to Tim, I decided on the numerals from Wendy's Art Parts stamp set as I thought this was perfect as this tag showcases me at the age of 4.
Yet again I improvised with my colouring and used fired brick Distress Marker which worked rather well for tinting my photograph. I then added my photo to a piece of paper from the Lost and Found Paper Stash, ageing with a little vintage photo ink and distressing the edges with the Paper Distresser.
As this picture features me when I was four I thought I would add one of the large Numerals fastened with long fasteners to secure. Like Tim I also added a Word Band coloured with a little snow cap Paint Dabber. I also love how the Pen Nibs have words engraved and this one has memoirs added.
For further interest and texture I also added some of the fabulous NEW ribbon that Wendy has in stock, really adds to that vintage feel.
As with Tim's tag I have added the leaves from the Idea-ology Foliage to one of the flowers from the Lavish Trimmings coloured with the new salty ocean ink.
Film Strip Ribbon has been added to the top of the photograph secured in place with a Gem Clip and for added dimension I also included PHOTO added to jump rings adhered with Glossy Accents.
Attached to my photograph is a File Tab again with the number 4 added and for further interest a small star has been added from the Adornments Charms attached with a jump ring. To add to the vintage feel of the tag I also blended a little vintage photo ink along the edges of my tag.
Wendy normally has the samples I complete for the shop, mmmm wonder whether she will really want this one with my little face staring back at her lol!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, Tracy x x
