DragonsDream - #Tag It On

Well done for rising to the yellow, lightbulb and wires challenge last time round!
This fortnight, the DragonsDream Tag it On challenge is set by my lovely friend Gabrielle, who sadly came off her bicycle in early May and broke her elbow, so won't be able to play along... but her recipe for your tag, is to use White, Metal and Transport. Somewhere on your tag you must use at least one real stamp.

I started by painting my tag white (Snowcap Fresco paint) - it was a pale tag, but I gave it a couple of coats nonetheless.

I stamped the New York Central ticket (Tim Holtz) in grey archival ink (because my white ink is dry and didn't show up...)

Stamped 'enjoy the journey' (also Tim Holtz) in black this time, on the tag







I took some metal and stamped the Tim Holtz hot air balloon onto it, then stuck it to some card and cut it out.  I painted the balloon "fabric" lightly, with the Snowcap paint. I took the Tim Holtz aeroplane and stamped it on some shrink plastic and if you ignore the bubble it came out ok... So that's my transport - modern and old.





 Added some white fibres to the tag to finish it off.

Hope the rest of my DT think I've used enough white!! Do come and have a play - we love to see how you interpret our recipes!

Once I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- check-box and now each time a remark is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any manner you may take away me from that service? Thanks!
