Planes, trains and automobiles !

I'm running a little late today so I'm on catch up ! It's time for the next challenge over at The Fashionable Stamping Challenge and the lovely Yvonne has chosed Planes, Trains and Automobiles !

I decided on a jumbo tag for this challenge and lots of PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints !  I painted the tag with Haystack, Pumpkin Soup, Guacamole and Hey Pesto, drying the paint in between each layer.  I used a water mister and added some Brown Shed Fresco Finish to it and spritzed the tag and finally did some stencilling with a Dylusions stencil. The aeroplane is a Katzelkraft stamp and the 2 men are from the Artistic Outpost Diesel Punk stamp set. I've painted them around the edges with Chocolate Pudding Fresco Finish paint to make them stand out better. The text stamp is from the Tim Holtz French Marketplace set and the honeycomb from the Mixed Media set. I used second generation stamping for the large cog, which is a Katzelkraft stamp.

I stamped the word 'Voyage' from the Tim Holtz Classics 1 stamp set then I cut the bottom off the tag and attached it with jump rings. The letters have been cut from mount board using the Tim Holtz WordPlay die, covered with Ferro texture paste and then painted with black acrylic paint. When they were dry I used Classic Treasure Gold to highlight them.

A quick project from me today, I need to get back into the swing of things ! I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and make sure to check out the rest of the DT's fabulous work.
