tiddly inks challenge #59 tag or ticket me

Hi all! Tomorrow I am off to Michigan to be with my family so this may be the last post until I get back. Today I am busy trying to get stuff for the trip. I need to have stuff to keep the girls happy on the plane. I love when they pick something out and say how much they love it and never touch it once it enters the house. How does that happen? Is the lighting in the store or the music that they play hypnotic that causes them to want things they don't want? Hopefully we got things that they will truly like to play with. I do not like being that parent with the screaming kids.

For this week's challenge we had make a giant tag or ticket for any project. I decided that I would make myself a luggage tag so that I could know which black suitcase was mine quickly.

So I used Owlette and TI's free luggage image and MIC's Steampunk Flying Machine on some grunge paper so that it could handle some wear and tear. Then I used my acrylic paints and Pearl Mists to create the background. For the imagesI used Twinkling H2O's and Copics. Then I distressed it with some black ink. I punched in a grommet. Then I used Mod Podge to seal in everything. On the back is all my info. I am also going to make a sleeve to give it added protection.

Here it is in it's plastic sleeve with washi tape on the outside.

Hope you guys all have a great next couple of weeks. I will miss doing the challenges while I am gone. Maybe I will bring some markers and supplies to be able to participate. But more than likely I will be busy taking care of things around my parents' house. So I will plan on touching base when I return home. Hugs to all : )
