the postman might be dropping off a few more soon...) but I knew I had to use Celestial Art and Mail Art. The leaves were cut from Grungepaper and then stained twice with Shabby Shutters Distress Stain for a nice deep colour. Then, with Peeled Paint Distress Ink, I stamped them with the background stamp from Celestial Art.
The tag was cut with another of Tim's dies (and my trusty Vagabond!) and stained with lots of blue Distress Stains by putting them on my craft sheet and swiping the tag through them (I used Stormy Sky, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Tumbled Glass and Chipped
Sapphire). Then I stamped the background stamp (at an angle) with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. In the top right corner I stamped a couple of the quotation stamps in Faded Jeans. I used one of the hand stamps and stamped it on Grungepaper with Jet Black Archival Ink and then
used Pumice Stone Distress Stain. The ticket is the reverse of an Adage Ticket stamped again with Archival Ink and then inked with Antique Linen Distress Stain and my favourite - Vintage Photo Distress Ink! then the tag was finished with some red sari material. Am so pleased I managed to find the challenge and need to thank Lori for her incredible patience with me! Have a fabulous rest of the weekend! Gabrielle x
