Voyage Tag

Since I recently had minor eye surgery that will need time to heal (4-6 weeks!) and then new glasses after that (yuck) - my posts will be short and sweet for a while!
Having said that, I'm just thrilled I can see well enough to create a few things right now!
This tag has a lot of products on it and layers of goodness.
So check out the links below and I hope you're inspired to play.
I used a #8 Manila tag and applied Distress Inks as a light base, and then added darker colors over the Burlap and Clockwork Stencils.
Pen marks and stamped images from Classics #1 set and Steampunk were next. The Voyage stamp is added with white paint.

Just a note: the O didn't stamp well, so I painted it in by hand....hence the difference from the stamp for those of you with a good eye!

Here is a detail shot of the stamping and stenciling.
I love the Tissue Tape layers and Industrious Stickers.

 The Compass Coin has white paint added to enhance the engraving and a game spinner/mini gear make the center.
 My eye is getting better every day! Thanks for all your well wishes, they meant a lot. Eye 2 is set for Monday!!!
 Take care and be good to each other!
