With not much time to spare, I made it for Tim's May 12 Tags of 2012 and Artistic Outpost's "Traveling."
Route 66 collection, including the cactus and eat button! Tim always says it is OK to improvise and so I did! Did not have pattern tissue paper, so inked up and distress regular tissue wrap. Did some collage stamping on the tissue paper and then adhered to the tag, then stamped the Motorcycle. For the button, I had an over sized brad type thing and removed the prongs. Stamped the Map and then the Eat, cut out with a circular die (right size - so cool). To fit inside the opening, I also cut an additional grunge piece. For the word, I used several coats of UTEE.
The cactus was stamped and cut out on grunge paper and again several coats of UTEE. The little rocky grassy stuff under the cactus is part of the stamp. After I cut this out, I did little cuts with scissors to break it up and give it a somewhat grass texture. I also colored this with some green markers and little highlights of green Opalite ink. It actually as a grassy rock desert kind of look!
With Memorial Weekend fast approaching, I need to make out my BBQ list. Whatever you plans are for the weekend, I hope it is a wonderful one! Thank you for stopping by to have a visit!
