Of course I had to improvise since I didn't have all of the products...but that in part is what makes it fun. I made the base with a sheet of burlap adhered to a manila tag with watered down matte Mod Podge and Emporium ephemera secured with Glue-N-Seal I used Wendy's Dots and Stripes Borders stencil with Ranger Texture Paste to make my stripes and tinted them with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink. I replaced the photo booth image with a photo of my Grandmother Kuhn on her Confirmation Day, age 14. She led a hard life...both of her parents were dead by the time she was 17 years of age and she traveled alone from Germany to the USA to work as a housekeeper for her Uncle's family. Through it all, she never lost her faith.
I tinted the ribbon with Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, and Walnut stain and I used the kraft Chit Chat Stickers for the sentiment. Finally, I made the flowers using the Tiny Tattered Florals Die and Kraft Core paper as Tim instructed.
Finally, I spritzed Black Soot Distress Marker lightly over the tag. That's all for today. Thanks, for stopping by :)
I would also like to enter my tag in Word Art Wednesday-Challenge #185 - Anything Goes/Family Friendly
