There are some things that hold a special place in your heart for one reason or another. The Statue of Liberty is one of those things for me. First and foremost, it reminds me of my beloved Grandmother. She took me there as a child and regaled me with stories of family members who made their way through Ellis Island. My Dad was also one of those people. As a New Yorker (born and raised), I have the luxury of seeing Lady Liberty quite often but that doesn’t make her lose even one iota of her wonder or nostalgia.
This card was cut from a Designer Paper aptly named “New York” that I found from Tim Holtz – and there’s another reason to love it! LOL!
I added the Distress Grit-Paste (which is white) to the edges of the card and then colored it with Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo Distress Crayons. I dapped a bit of Evergreen Bough Distress Paint in a few places as well. The Idea-ology Quote Band was silver so I used Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo Distress Paint over Grit-Paste to color it and then touched Evergreen Bough Distress Paint in a few places on there as well. The Crinkle Ribbon was a “Mop Up” Ribbon from the other day. You can see that post HERE. Always, always have ribbons and tags to mop up and excess inks or stains from your Craft Sheet!
This is the Side-by-Side of the Tag and the Card. You’ll notice that the images were cut from the same piece of Tim’s collaged paper below.
I love this! It looks like someone’s Scrapbook Page!
