It kinda developed.....

For this weeks challenge at L3 Studios....compendium of Curiosities is embossing with ....you guessed it embossing powder but not your ordinary one you have to use Distress Embossing powder, I must confess that I only have the one which is black soot but it lends itself for the silohuette effect that I wanted for this stamp which is from Paper Artsy, you get a lovely grunge texture effect when you rub your finger over the top of the raised area, the background of the tag was distressed with Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Mahoghany and a smidge of dried straw, I then spritzed the tag with Irr. gold glimmer mist......the effect I wanted was a kinda sunset with the dying heat of the sun as it sets.Then instead of leaving it at that I got a bit carried away and added a stamped suitcase (B Line stamp) onto acetate and laid it over the top of  the tag and made a flap by securing one side with eyelets, the flower stamp is from this months Craft Stamper mag....yummy or what the stamp I mean....great flower, I cut the petals and rolled them to get a more dimensional flower, added a ticket from Mr Holtz and a gold Fleur de Lys to finish off the tag you can lift the flap up and then put a photo under it.......

That Craft Stamper stamp is fab - I never really use my freebies, but this one might just make it out of the box x

My, oh my, Daniele, you ROCKED this challenge-- your tag is a masterpiece! Not only does the Distress Ink look fab, the tag design is awesome! I love the eyelets and all your cool embellishments, and the glimmer mist looks so good I want to spray it all over everything I make from now on.

Guess it's obvious: I LOVE this! Bravo!
