Wanderlust tag

This is one of my fave tags I have made...I tried a technique I have seen Mark use- and that is to emboss the whole image with clear embossing really makes the colors pop!  I used two images from The Octopode Factory- a frame and Cedric.  I colored him with copics, used a kraft tag, and stenciled on spots and stripes with Distress Ink, then used a Tim Holtz stamp for the background along with a bit of striped paper from Basic Grey.  The sentiment I am pretty sure is from Create with TLC and the ribbon is seam binding.

What a fun tag! I can see why it's one of your faves. I'm going to have to try the embossing method...such a cool effect.
Thanks so much for sharing this week at TTCRD. We hope to see you back very soon!

Hi Carla,
I too love the Octopode stamps though it is ages since I played with them! What a terrific sentiment to pair with sweet Cedric!
