Another Challenge Site

I have talked myself into joining the current fortnightly challenge at The Stamp Man.  It was hard twisting my own arm so far up my back!  Haven’t been able to do that since I was about 3! LOL

Frankie set the theme as travel here too and I had a tag that I had been playing with, technique wise, but it was never “finished” as such.

The tag was inked with distress inks then the stamps of the hand were done in Archival. I then literally slapped on some petroleum jelly where I wanted a resist (ie over the stamping and a few other random places) and then covered the tag with white acrylic paint.  When the paint was dry, I took a paper towel and wiped off the areas that had the PJ on them and there you have a “peeling” paint kind of look.

I then added a bit of glitter paint here and there and added the balloons.  The Stamps are from Crafty Secrets and the phrase is a cutting file from the very talented Kerri Bradford.
