Dreamy Tags with Paper Artsy Stamps

Hi Dreamers!
This month the Designers for Blockheads stamps will be showing fun ways to use your travel themed stamps.   That would include stamps with transportation images, far away places, luggage, tickets, that sort of thing.  I have named my projects for today Dream Travel.  I used stamps by Paper Artsy available in the USA from Blockheads Stamps.

Materials List:
Stamps: Paper Artsy by Lynne Perrella LPC013-Maria and LPC010-Nina from Blockheads Stamps
Inks: Onyx Black Versa Fine; Pistachio Memento; Forest Moss Distress Ink Ranger
Inks for the Background: Shabby Shutters and Forest Moss Reinkers; Antique Bronze Metallic Distress Stain from Ranger
White CS 
Ribbon, Lace, pearls


  • Make the background by placing the reinkers and metallic stain on a Craft sheet.  
  • Spray a little water onto the inks
  • Press White CS into the inks
  • When dry cut into a tag--5 1/2" x 2 1/2"

  • Stamp the Paper Artsy images onto the tags with Onyx Black ink
  • Stamp the circle stamp with Pistachio ink

I wanted some kind of a border on the edge of the tags.  So, I partially stamped the keys from LPC010-Nina stamp set along the edges.  Here is the second tag.

Love the dreamy images!  When I look at the images, I think that the person is dreaming of being in this far away exotic place.  Hence the title "Dream Travel"
