Tag for a Male

The theme for Try it on Tuesday this week is a tag for a male.

The background paper is by Scrap within Reach (only had it for 10 months! Lol!) and has been overstamped with Pumice Stone and Sepia swirls (stamp by Tim Holtz).

The border at the bottom is a sticker, also by Scrap within Reach, and I added some trimmed 7gypsies gaffer tape immediately above it.  I stamped over it with a crackle stamp by Crafty Individuals.

The Knight is by Elusive Images and it is stamped on to Stampboard.  The stampboard was inked with Rusty Hinge and Pumice Stone distress inks first.  The same swirls as before were added using Timber Brown Stazon ink, and the knight image was "scratched" with a metal tool to highlight some of the detail.  I put a little silver Inka Gold around the edges.

I stamped "my hero" on a second piece of backing paper and inked it with Vintage Photo and Black Soot distress inks, then folded it in to a little banner.

I inked all the edges with black soot, added some ancient brads that I had in my brad box, then finished it off with some lovely stripey ribbon from SU.

Wednesday night already!  This week is flying by.

Thank you for looking, and thank you (as always) for all your lovely comments this week. X
