Inspiration Journal April Challenge: A Few of My Favourite Things

Okay, last project for tonight - I promise!  ;-)

Here's my tag:

 - Ranger Distress Stain: Tea Dye
 - idea-ology Chit Chat

 - Stamps by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous: CMS162, CSS25900

Ever since I was a little kid, I've thought trains were cool.  So, since I've already submitted a Moulin Rouge tag to this challenge this month, I figured trains would be a fun theme.  :-)

I started by covering my tag with Distress Stain and heating it to dry it.  I splattered some water droplets on it, again drying it, and then began to stamp some of my various train-themed stamps.  All of the stamps except the train were stamped with colors, and the train I stamped in black, to make it stand out. Once I was done stamping, I edged my card with Vintage Photo Distress ink, inked a Chit Chat sticker with a little Antique Linen, and added it to the tag.  Lastly, I cut a piece of the Maya Road twine cording, and ran a foam blending tool with some brown ink on it over it to make it look a little older and dingier, and tied it through the hole at the top.

Well, I may be back before the end of the week, but this is definitely it for April's projects!  See you next month!
