GC13: Spicy Supply Challenge - Tags

I am hosting this month's new Spicy Supply Challenge at Gingersnap Creations. I decided to use one of my favorite accessories - tags! I have been making a lot of travel themed cards lately so I decided to stick with that idea for this challenge.

Trying out the Faux Design Paper technique from the December/January issue of Technique Junkies was on my list of "to dos" but I keep chickening out. My new acquisition from Oxford Impressions, the Maiden Voyage plate, really lent itself to this technique. If you love these images as much as I do, take some time to find out a bit more about the woman of vision behind them, Suzanne Melvin. I had the pleasure of interviewing Suzanne recently for Gingersnap Creations.

Now, that I've actually tried it out and realized how simple and fast it is, I will definitely be doing this again....a lot.

Here's what I came up with for the challenge:

Beautiful Traveler
flourish from the Wicked plate, star from School days plate and various images from the Maiden Voyage plate (all from Oxford Impressions)
Paper: uncoated glossy paper (Stampland Chicago); Whisper White and Not Quite Navy (Stampin Up)
Ink: Yellow Ochre, Bisque, Amber Clay, Olive Pastel and Aquamarine (ColorBox Chalk Inks); Rich Cocoa (Memento); Not Quite Navy (Stampin Up); Anitque Linen (Ranger Distress Ink)
Other: Stamp N Stuff clear embossing powder (Stampendous)
Embellishments: circle tag (Avery)
Tools: iron & heat tool

Have wonderful journeys of creativity and safe trips wherever you wander!
