Hi everyone! For my design team piece this week, I decided I wanted to do something more masculine so I pulled out my Diesel Punk set and played around. Here is the outcome of my play session. I started with a jumbo manila tag and stamped multiple images from the Diesel Punk set in jet black archival. Then I sponged the entire tag with Vintage Photo, then added some distressing with Walnut Stain DI. Next I pulled out my Chalk it Up set and stamped the frames for the wonderful auto and motorcycle + sidecar images.
I created a smaller tag with the speed limit sign stamped second and third generation and then embossed the sentiment using jet black archival ink and clear EP. I added a few fun masculine embellishments - a wrench held on by twisted wire, a compass charm and a couple of keys dangling from a swivel clasp.
I had also made a tire track embossed piece using a Tim Holtz texture fade. I had planned to use it in the background, but it didn't really work out. But at the last, it seemed to work out well to place it on the left side. I thought it was kind of fun to expand the tag past the normal boundaries.
That wraps it up for another week for me.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
