Tiddly Inks Challenge #59 - Jumbo Tag or Ticket

 Happy Tiddly Tuesday!!!  Oh did I have fun with this one!!  This week's Tiddly Challenge is to incorporate a ticket into your creation or to create using a jumbo tag.  I went with the latter.  I simply ADORE tags and I used them frequently in my creations.  I do for some reason, struggle when using them as the main component in lieu of a card base in a creation.  I eventually figure it out but for some reason I stare at them on my desk for quite some time before I can get my mojo going! 

This week I've used two Tiddly Inks images - Whoops and the Text Paper from the Steampunk Extra Goodies pack! 

I colored Whoops in with my Copics and paper pieced her dress.  I took a bit of sandpaper and distressed her dress a bit.  I then set my main image aside while I worked on the elements of my tag.  I covered the back of my tag with the Text paper.  I then distressed it with Tim Holtz - Tea Dye Ink and a sponge.  

I then went through my scrap bins mixing and matching pieces together and stitching everything in place.  I used a paper doily cut with an MFT die, a large blingy flourish and a chipboard heart.  For the heart, I coated it in rich red craft ink, thick embossing powder and heat set it.  I simply ADORE the texture it adds!!  I used some vintage cotton ribbon, an SU! jumbo rivet and some PTI aqua ribbon for the top of my tag.  

As a last embellishment, I pulled out my chocolate Doodlebug glitter and spiced up her ice cream cone - both in her hand and in her hair!!
I do so hope you come join us a the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog this week!!   I can't wait to see what you create!!

She ROCKS. I love the distressing on her dress, in the second photo it looks like water droplets.

The glazing on the heart is so fab, often a step I miss - I'm lazy.

You were so right take all your elements outside the tag frame, it looks so AWESOME and more visually interesting! The stitching is so wonderful - again a step I am too lazy to do.
