Nautical tag tutorial (Let your dreams set sail)

Hello lovely friends, hope you are well!

Today, I am sharing a step by step tutorial of how I made my vintage nautical tags, for my challenge blog Crafts Dreamy

To make this tag, I started with a blank piece of white card stock measuring 5 1/4 " x 3 1/4" 
I then inked the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.

Next, I chose this beautiful Vintage Sailor boy image to use as a focal point on my tag.

I have used these beautiful digital papers Denim and Diamonds 
and some torn cardboard for added interest.

I used Vintage photo distress ink on all edges and Picket fence distress paint to highlight certain areas on my tag and the cardboard piece to give a more shabby, vintage look to everything.

I have also stamped certain areas of the paper using a Kaisercraft texture background stamp and vintage photo distress ink. 

Once everything had been adhered using double sided tape and pop dots (under the photo) I then added a little more of the Picket fence distress paint.

Finally, I adhered some cheese cloth and a fussy cut Anchor embellishment to the right side of the tag. I have also added a quote 'let your dreams set sail'.

Here are the rest of my nautical tags that I have made, I hope you like them?! 

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you on the next one!

Dreaming of the Ocean

Hello lovely friends, hope you are well!

As a self-confessed Thalassophile, I love the Ocean! I dream of living, one day, in a quaint little cottage that overlooks the Sea... that would be my idea of Heaven on Earth.

Today, I am sharing with you, two vintage tags that I have made for my challenge blog 

This Month's theme is all things Nautical! Here is the Mood board for inspiration.

I have used these beautiful papers from the Denim and Diamonds digital paper pack and these stunning Vintage French Postcard  Seaside images to create my art tags.

I will be making a step by step tutorial on how I made these tags on the next blog post.

Thanks for stopping by, I do really appreciate you visiting.
