I've just hosted a tag swap and the brief I gave was to make 2 tags with a vintage and/or distressed theme. These are my two that are now winging their way (well, in the back of a post office van) to 2 other places in the country.

Each tag is 6" tall. They were covered with some paper from a huge K & Co pad I've got. Everything was inked with distress ink pads Walnut Stain and Brushed Corduroy. I stamped the honeycomb grid and the birds using another of my new Kaisercraft Stamps (sheesh! I love Kaisercraft). Hope and Dream are Tim Holtz tickets and the boy is a Tim Holtz Ideaology 'Lost and Found' sticker. Dream and the chipboard key (inked with walnut stain) were crackle glazed. The text strips I did myself on my pooter and the other bits were from my stash.
