CC3C- Challenge 2 {Distress Glitter}

The second CC3C Challenge theme is Distress Glitter, so I found a few pieces to coat in glitter and made this tag so I could play along :)  I kept my tag pretty simple, after glittering up the wooden airplane (prima) I knew I had a look through my Tim Holtz stamp binders and found this one I hadn't even inked up yet!  I stamped it with Potting Soil Archival ink and used Distress Ink over it to create my background.  A bit of washi and some brads, together with the glittery shapes and a crackled heart are all I needed for this tag!

I outlined some words with a black pen and added Crackle Accents over the word 'journey'
 I couldn't resist adding this hat brad to my heart!  The crackle heart was metallic Distress Crackle Paint with Archival Ink over it. 
This buckle (a bonus in my package from Tim & Mario with my CC3 book!) and some twill tape I inked with Distress finish off the tag.  I love how easy this was to attach to the tag, and how it looks like a luggage tag now! So fun!
Here's another look at the full tag, with the full twill tape loop in the photo.  Fun, right?
I love these Compendium of Curiosities challenges and how they stretch me to create something new!  This challenge is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique and some lucky participant will get a $25 GC from them :)  Plus someone who creates something amazing will get a goodie pack of TH stuff- fabulous!  Win or not, it was great to play along though!  Leave me a comment if you are playing too and I will pop over to see what you made!

Not playing :) but should be! Love your tag, I thought the word 'journey' was wood burned and I thought I'd have to give it a try, lol
The saying is great too :) and the 'belt' is awesome :)
