Stampman Challenge - Time or Travel


As the Stampman challenge stated one or the other, Time OR Travel, I knew I should not really combined the two into one piece of art. Deciding which to make then proved difficult as I love both themes, so I made one of each on matching tags!
I made two identical tags by adding emulsion from matchpots in cream, pink & chocolate. Once dry I overstamped in Archival black with the Crafty Individuals Crackle stamp. I chose my focal images of the German Castle by Cherry Pie and the CI 062 Angel Child stamp & after stamping them onto white matt photo paper I over inked them with distress inks in Frayed Burlap, Rusty Hinge & Worn Lipstick. Once dry I bleached out some of the colour to give the images definition before over colouring with a little Tattered Rose. On the Time piece I embossed 2 Heidi Swapp clock stamps in copper. The clock face is from a broken watch. Travel stamps are by Royal & Langnickel. Quotes from the internet.
Brads & ribbon,  Papermania.

These are stunning, Paula. I love how you've made twin tags for each theme but they create one piece of art work. I recognise that castle too!!!
Thanks so much for sharing them with us at The Stampman this time.
