Oh The Places You will Go

Howdy.   It's Funkie time over at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge blog.  Zoe provided us this fun challenge "Oh the Places You will Go" .  For this one you will need to create a vintage or shabby chic project with travel as the central theme. Think planes, trains, auto-mobiles, ships, maps, globes.
 
The Design Team will choose their top four picks with the winner being invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at Frilly and Funkie and the next three will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  The Boutique is having an awesome sale right now and some great deals!



I wanted to use the negative space from the globe die and decided to play around with sponging distress ink over the globe.
I created to travel inspired tags using a brown dye ink and the globe cut from a manilla tag.  I started using plain cardstock for my globe as a stencil. It worked okay but didn't hold it shape as well when I was sponging on the ink.  One of the tags was made using the paper globe and the other was sponged with a manilla tag globe which was sturdier.  :)  I am sure you can guess which is which based on how crisp the lines are.

I like working in parallel on two of a similar project sometimes as it gives you an opportunity to try out different ideas.  The fun is to see where you end up with the to different variations of the same project.

Don't forget to pop over to the Frilly and Funkie blog to see everyone's beautiful creations!  Thanks for stopping by!

  2. These tags are so inspiring! So many wonderful details tucked in that I have to keep going back for another look. The way you used the globe was pure genius, and I like both the crisp and the softer version equally. You've really told a story here. Just wonderful!
