As soon as I saw the hero challenge I knew that I had to use the Charles and Amelia plate from Artistic Outpost.
I added my aviator to a bottle cap coloured with ginger alcohol ink, sponging the image with vintage photo Distress Ink. For further interest I added FLY AROUND WORLD to the top of the tag along with wings for further dimension, again coloured with alcohol ink. To add to the masculine feel I also included screw brads to one side and the top of my tag. I also added a household bracket to the top to enable me to hang my tag from some rusty chain.
I stamped my second aviator onto a circular piece of card, coloured with vintage photo Distress Ink, adding black soot to the edges. I added yet another wing, adding 'fly' to the top, perfect embellishement for an aviation tag.
A small tag has also been added, embossed with the stencil texture fade and sanded with a little wire wool. I matted the small tag onto a piece of black Bazzill card to lift from the background. I love the fabulous sentiment from the Artistic Outpost set, again stamped onto white card and aged with vintage photo ink. I love the wheel that I have added at the bottom of my tag (this was a lovely gift from my blogging buddy and fellow DT member Suzz). I coloured my wheel to blend with my tag and to age a little and added a mini gear to the centre.
To add to the vintage, aged feel I also added some natural twine to the large and small tag. From this angle you can also see the fabulous texture and interest in the background, I love it.
