This week's Compendium of Curiosities challenge uses the Tinted Vision Fragments tutorial found on page 55 of Tim's book. I didn't have any photos I could use, didn't want to use a stamped image, so, what's a girl to do? Hey, I have some clip art books on my shelf (definitely need to do a re-org!) and one is Suze Weinberg's and it's chock full of all sizes of artwork that you can use behind memory glass...so why not fragments? Cool! I didn't want to make a truly vintage tag so when I saw the cowboy I knew I was onto something different.
The top layer of the tag uses Wendy' plaid background stamped in Crimson Archival Ink. Tore the top and bottom then distressed the edges - of course! The edges were distressed with Barn Door, Vintage Photo and Black Soot. 'Genuine' was stamped with Distress Embossing Ink then Vintage Photo Distressed Powder on top. A gold pen filled in some of the filigree. The tag itself was distressed with Vintage Photo and Black Soot then paisley stamps all around the edges (Black Archival Ink). The Innksentials pen gave them the bandana look. Cool, huh? The rest of the stamps are from Stampin' Up (Wanted and Bronc Buster). A piece of twine to mimic a lariat completes the piece.
