On The Road Again!

Simon Says Stamp and Show want us to Show A Song Title, Linda's Grungy Monday #34 is wanting us to use Tim's, Crackle Resist and you can see that HERE and Gingersnap Creations GC134 is all
about Ribbons!  So here we go with Willie Nelson.


The tag background was done per the video instructions.  I Distressed Crackled, Distress Inked, and stamped using Tim's Air Travel Map and Compass.  The words I computer generated along with a picture of Willie!  The Old Jalopy was cut from black chipboard and then covered in Brushed Pewter Crackle and I did ink over that.  Added some of Tim's embellishments and of course the pen nib is "thoughts" as I am sure that Willie had plenty of thoughts before taking pen to paper!  The ribbons were distressed with both ink and the crimper as I wanted them to be a little less perky!

This was quite fun and I enjoyed making the background!  Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment.  Have a fabulous day!

Crackle Paint:  Broken China, Brushed Pewter
Distress Inks:  Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Weathered Wood
