Summer Memories Vintage Tag

This month I'm featuring a stamp from VivaLasVegaStamps! along with Sakura Hobby Craft products! I created this fun vintage beach tag using the following items.
Manila Tag
Scrapbook paper scraps
Flourish rubberstamp - Tim Holtz
Film Strip Ribbon - Tim Holtz
Vintage Ticket sticker
Hinge Clip - Tim Holtz
charms from my stash
Distress Inks - Old Paper & Vintage Photo
I started with distressing the edges of the manila tag using distress ink. I cut my scrapbook paper scrap the size of the tag and distressed the edges using a Zutter Distrezz It All to really rough up the edges and make it a little smaller than the tag. I stamped the girl image on plain white cardstock using black distress ink and embossed her with clear embossing powder. I aged the white cardstock with distress ink in old paper and vintage photo on the edges.
I stamped a flourish image over the scrapbook paper using StazOn ink in black and outlined some of the flourish with brown Crystal Color Lacquer. I set this aside for a few hours before I finished assembling the tag.
Creating the film strip was a little time consuming - but turned out really cool! I just cut small face images from scraps of scrapbooking paper - here I was using Graphic 45's Bathing Beauties - one of my all time favs! I placed a dot of Crystal Lacquer on top of the image and then pressed the film strip over it. To finish the tag, I adhered a vintage ticket sticker behind the clipped on film strip ribbon and added some fun charms.
