Imagination Tag

I was thinking about imagination in all its forms today. We all know incredibly imaginative people - from artists to teachers, from mothers to engineers, from scientists to musicians. This card was inspired by all the imaginative people out there!

Imagination Tag
Geek is Chic collage, Numbers background, QTPi, nerd with glasses, sentiment, pocket protector advertisement, Einstein postage and ruler element from Geek is Chic plate (Artistic Outpost)
Paper: Stoked from the Hang Ten Collection (BasicGrey)
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie & Whisper White (Stampin Up)
Ink: Apricot Appeal, Creamy Caramel, Night of Navy (Stampin Up); Antique Linen (Ranger Distress Ink)
Other: shipping tag

To create the collage, I stamped the Numbers background first, then used masking to add the pocket protector advertisement and the Einstein postage and a portion of the Geek is Chic collage while alternating between Creamy Caramel ink and Antique Linen distress ink.

I then switched to Night of Navy ink and added the sentiment and some elements. I finished up by inking only the "QT Pi" portion of the nerd with glasses stamp and overstamping it randomly in Apricot Appeal. I stamped Einstein from the Geek is Chic collage on Whisper White cardstock, cut it out and adhered it to the bottom of the tag. To keep the tag string in place, I added just a hint of adhesive to the string and tacked it to the card.

Take some time to celebrate your imagination today!
