Bella Luggage tag for VSN

I made a luggage tag this weekend! Of course, I can't find the actually luggage tag holders over here, so I purchased a "document sleeve" made by Herma (remember, used to make Hermafix which is now called Dotto!) and punched a hole at the top for my ribbon.

I made this for another of the VSN challenges, and was very happy with how she turned out. I stamped my Beachabella on confetti white CS, and watercolored her with my watercolor wonder crayons (WWC). After putting some polka dots on her bikini with my white gel pen, I decided I didn't like her beach mat, so I stamped it on the back side of some scrap DSP that was used as the middle layer on the tag, cut it out, and voila! a striped mat! I colored in some sand at her feet, but wanted some dots as well, so using my close to cocoa marker I colored in some of the sand around the crab from Crab & Company and stamped that (after masking her feet of course. Lastly, I stamped Beach Bound up the side. Guess you can take that 2 ways, huh?? :-) I'd love to be bound to the beach!! :-) Just a few more weeks til our trip to Barcelona though, so hopefully I'll see a beach while there.

Stamps: Crab & Company, Beachabella, Rough Edges Alphabet
Paper: Certainly Celery, Petal Patch DSP, Confetty White
Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Sponge, Aquapainter, WWC, Celery Organdy Ribbon
