Simple tag - paper planes

Hi everyone,

It's me again with a new tag for you.

I recently cleaned my stencil with some Distress Stain spray in prize ribbon on it on a piece of watercolor paper. When I was thinking about what to creat for today's post, this paper caught my eye and I cut a tag as well as some smaller rectangles from it.
If you don't have a paper like this ready on your desk, you can always start with doing some reverse stenciling or use a patterned paper instead.

With a dark blue ink I stamped the row of numbers onto some spots of the tag and parts of the typeset scallop onto the rectangles. Then I distressed the edges of the rectangles a bit and inked them as well as the tag's edges themselves with some black ink.

I stamped the paper plane as well as a matching text onto watercolor paper and cut it out. I inked the edges of the plane with a black marker and the quote with a blending tool.
Then I assembled the tag by gluing down the rectangles, the plane and the quote and added everything to a base cut from black cardtock. As a finishing touch I added a ribbon.

Stamps used:
Row of Numbers (20170)
Typeset Scallop (20163)
Paper Airplane (20409)
Fold your worries (20407)

Other material:
- Canson watercolor paper
- Distress Spray Stain (prize ribbon)
- Archival ink (jet black, seafarer)
- stencil (Studio Light: Art by Marlene, out of this world #46)
- ribbon

This is (at least for now) my last post on the blog. After two years in the VLVS inspiration team, it's time for some new adventures. But I'm sure we will meet each other from time to time in their Facebook group.

All the best for 2022! :)
