Hi there, Linda here with the tag I made for this month's blog hop. The Keeper plate is one of my all-time Artistic Outpost favorites and I've always loved this vintage stamp of the young man showing off his catch. The rest of the stamps used here are from the Route 66 plate.
I had the tag already stained left over from another project. I used it to absorb left over stains in colors Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade and a bit of Mustard Seed. I added some sponging to the edges, first with Vintage Photo and then with Jet Black archival. Then, using black archival, I stamped the images from Route 66. I used the Baroque die to cut the corrugated cardboard and sponged the edges with Vintage Photo and then with black archival. Then it was coated with Clear Rock Candy distress crackle paint.
Keeper plate. I wanted them to be multi-colored the way fish really are so I took a piece of acrylic packaging and applied alcohol ink, colors Stream, Meadow and Ginger. When dry, I flipped it over and stamped fish using Jet Black archival. When the ink dried, I fussy cut them out, poked a tiny hole in the mouth area of each one and put them on my "stringer" which I attached with one of the tiny screw eyes from Idea-ology.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are enjoying your weekend!
