One Layer Tags No. 36: Big tag, little tag

2013-08-17 12 Tags of 2013 August
Meet big tag and little tag. The big tag is made from medium-weight chipboard that I hand-cut. It’s 8 inches tall and 4 inches wide. The small tag is 4.75″ tall and 2 3/8″ wide and is from Inkssentials. I created these tags based on the Tim Holtz August tag challenge. The challenge is to create a tag (or two or more!) with a travel theme (literal or figurative) using the masking technique. Basically, it’s a one layer tag stamping challenge :-)

I don’t have the stamps Tim used to demo the tags he created, but I do have lots of Tim Holtz stamps from Stampers Anonymous so I pulled them all out and picked the ones that could work for a travel-themed tag. I also had travel-themed stamps from other companies so I took those out too and used them in the tags. Really had fun making these tags because I got to play with my favorite distress inks.

I’d love to give these tags a home so if you’d like to own these tags, leave a comment. I’ll randomly pick one winner on August 31 and snail mail the tags :-)
