TIOT - guest designer

Back in January I was honoured to be picked for the Top 5 of Try it in Tuesday's Snow, Snowflakes and Winter whites challenge with this window hanging. The girls at TIOT asked if I would like to be a guest designer - well, not a difficult decision so here I am with a tag inspired by their new challenge theme - Transport.
I used Tim Holt's rusted enamel technique for the base of the tag and over this I added stamping. I matted this tag onto a larger Kraft tag which I had also stamped on. 
I made a topper by stamping on kraft, smudging some picket fence distress stain, highlighting with glossy accents and adding a touch of distress stickles in antique linen to the edges. 
I stamped the same image again and fussy cut the aeroplane and die cut the word explore from cork sheet - oh and added a touch more stickles. I also die cut some Kraft glassine paper using Sizzix (Time Holtz) mixed media die. White splatters of dylusions spray ink and dots with a sharpie added the finishing touch. 
 It's been a pleasure to be part of the TIOT challenge as their guest and I hope you are able to create and join in too - Thanks for stopping by...Happy crafting..Esther xx
