You Are The Hero In Your Own Story

I've been using the PAPERBOY plate from Artistic Outpost to create a huge textural tag.
I used a black tag and then covered most of the tag with corrugated card to add texture and dimension to the background.
I added the fabulous sentiment from the Paperboy Plate along with a pen nib which I aged with a touch of black Paint Dabber. I also added pencils stamped onto kraft card from the Secretary Pool plate.
I stamped the paperboy and added a touch of shading using a Distress Marker. I added the paperboy to some pieces of vintage newspaper, punching the edges with a paper punch. I also added a lollipop stick which I coloured with Distress Inks and added the text EXTRA! EXTRA! using black Archival Ink. I also added a mini typewriter along with a further stamped pencil and also added a piece of typing paper to my typwriter adding NEWS to the paper. I also added a huge button threaded with twine.
A few more splats and a touch of random stamping on the corrugated card complete my tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Fabulous tag, Tracy! The corrugated cardboard is a great touch and placing the PB on the note punched paper is perfect!
