If You Plan on Travelling This Summer, Always Travel In Style

Last week I altered a tote bag for the latest Crafty Individuals Challenge. I liked how well the Flappers (CI-322) stamped on the fabric that I’d dyed so decided to stamp up some more and then layer them onto their beautiful large shabby tags. There are 5 tags in a pack and they are a wonderful size, what I would term as an outsize tag. They come softly decorated which means you can use them as they come or build up layers of stamping, ink, paint, whatever your heart desires.
For these decorated tags I used quite a lot of stamps. Some are individual stamps while others are Crafty Elements sets – Β CI-322, CI-122, CI-124, CI-239,CI-238, CI-307 and CI-214
You can see that I chose to stamp onto the tags, building up layers of stamping with mainly postal related images.
The flowers you might recognise as I used some on the cards I posted just the other day. They were so relaxing to make that I made a batch of them. Here I used it to further embellish a florist’s pin.
As an alternative to a fashion theme I liked the notion that these women were from different parts of the world, Paris, New York and London so I teamed the Flappers up with the cancellation marks depicting those cities.
This woman has such a haughty look to her!
Stamping the cancellation mark and postal mark I layered them to create a stamped embellishment, tucking a scrap piece of fabric behind them.
I am taking part, once again in Pink Saturday and these will be my entry. Maybe I’ll see you there. Lynne x
