Travel and Destinations

I have been wanting to have a go at Tim's Tag for August for a couple of weeks but have been distracted by other things. So today I revisited the blog and decided to have a play.I like using the masking technique and particularly like the colours Tim used for his tags.
I have the aeroplane stamps but they are the mini versions so look a bit silly on the bigger tags that I have so rather than attempting a smaller tag I thought I'd just make a panel and mount it on a card.
As mentioned before, I liked the colours used for the background, frayed burlap and pumice stone but did not have those distress stains so used distress inks instead with a lot of water. I like it, it pleases me.
I won't describe the details here as Tim's tutorial is very good, go check it out via my link.

So, here is my "inspired by Tim" card :


This post is for Michael and Donna-Jean who are off on holiday (vacation) tomorrow. Have a great time!
