I was going to make a couple of travel inspired tags, but I got really carried away.
I stamped London at the bottom of the tag with Memento Tuxedo Black, and stamped again on a post it note for a mask.
Cut out the mask, placed it and then stamped the double decker bus, and then stamp again on a post it note for a mask.
Cut it out, place it and stamp Big Ben - stamp again on a post it...you got it, cut it out and place it. (all the stamps from London #19199)
Then stamp the postcard from Background Writing #904 set with VersaFine Vintage Sepia.
I colored everything with Copic markers. Sponged a little sky with VersaMagic Sea Breeze. Then, added a few highlights with a white gel pen. I added JudiKins Diamond Glaze to the bus windows for more dimension. Tied on fibers and ribbon (May Arts) and done!
I loved it so much I had to keep going...next was a Paris Tag:
I did all the same steps, using the bistro table and chairs first, then the Eiffel Tower then the word Paris all in Memento Tuxedo Black. (all stamps from Paris #19198)
Again, I used the postcard stamping in VersaFine Vintage Sepia. Colored with Copic markers.Highlighting with a white gel pen and tying on fibers and ribbon!
I couldn't stop thinking of another stamp I ran across - I have always loved it..."It is not the destination, but the journey." Oh, I could make a travel journal and use those words! I had a composition book, the perfect paper and the stamps were already dirty, so I may as well use them again before I clean put them away.
I started with Crackle paper from Paper Pizazz - stamping the background first I used all the stamps from the Paper Wings Productions stamp sets from the tags: London #19199, Paris #19199 and Background Writing #904. I stamped them randomly with VersaFine Vintage Sepia. I also used Destination (Inkadinkado 390933) and Journey (7Gypsies by Hampton) I stamped 2 - 12 x 12 pieces of the Crackle paper.
Next, I stamped (again randomly) a few of the designs with Memento Tuxedo Black, some of these designs (not all, I thought it would be too busy) were colored with my Copic markers. Now time to add lots of additional color - the following were used and sponged randomly for the additional color: VersaMagic Pumpkin Spice, VersaMagic Magnolia Bud, VersaMagic Purple Hydrangea, Brilliance Pearlescent Rust (LOVE that color), Pearlescent Orange and Pearlescent Lime.
I stamped the Destination words on cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black and sponged it with all the colors - cut out and rounded the corners layering it to a plain black cardstock also with rounded corners.
For the spine I chose Black Diamond from Paper Adventures.
Cut and cover the composition book with your stamped papers covering the spine last, for the spine I chose Black Diamond from Paper Adventures.
