Create your own Journey

I pulled together a few challenges and had a fun time creating a tag with a surprise.  Louise at Kard Krazy has a fun challenge for Tag Tuesday this week it is to have a surprise on your tag.  The City Crafter Challenge is In My Pocket and the JUGS challenge is to use acrylic smoosh technique.  Roll all those three challenges into one and this is what you get. :)

Here is the secret tag that hides in the pocket.



Here is the picture of both the tag with pocket and secret tag.





The background was created with Shabby Shutters re-inker dripped on the craft mat and spritzed with water and pearl misters Kiwi and swirled together. Drag the tag through that.  Spritz with Chalkboard Glimmer Mist Peacock Blue. Stamped the images (Tim Holtz Collection Stampers Anonymous Air Travel CMS102) using Ranger Archival Sepia.  I also have B Line Designs Ticket Duo and Telegram Duo stamped on the outside.  The inside tag uses the same SA set and a Hero Arts Sentiment.

I had to post today as I had a good friend send me an email saying.. ."Hello... Your blog is calling." Made me laugh. Been busy trying to catch up on projects before vacation. So not as much to share. :)

I will be back later with the CR84FN card.  Fun colors!

Have a wonderful weekend!
