The Craft's Meow July Preview: Life is A Carnival

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MY THE GREETING FARM POST! THANK YOU!


Today at The Craft's Meow, we are previewing this fun Life is A Carnival set! This set has a lot of images so I was trying to think of a way to showcase most of them and this is what I came up with...A set of tags!

I don't usually make tags but had so much with this set!

First, I made a box for the tags. For the cover, I used the ticket image.

I wanted the tags to look vintagey... viola! I stamped the images onto kraft cardstock with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink and then embossed them with kaleidoscope transparent embossing powder. You know how much I love sparkly things! I distressed the edges with distressed ink (tea dye) and color box chalk ink (red and dark brown).



So what do you think? Like them? Fun images, don't you think? Want a chance to win your own set? Head over to The Craft's Meow blog and find out how!
