I made 7 similar (but not identical) tags.
I've sent 6 tags and kept one for myself, as I may use it for a future private swap.
The colors I chose remind me of an Indian summer.
Manila CS (for the tags)
Impression obsession C-A-C Map stamp
Tim Holtz Ideaology mini mask Compass Stencil
Ranger's Distress Ink - Aged Mahogany, Scattered Straw
StazOn ink - Jet Black
Tim Holtz French Market acrylic stamp set - postal stamp
3D stone stickers by EK Success - Travel
Color changing soft fibers
Ranger's Glossy Accents
3D double sided foam tape
I started with manila #8 tags (which I cut out of CS), stamping the background with an IO stamp of an old world map with a compass, using StazOn ink (Jet Black).
I attached the mini mask Compass Stencil to the tag and blended Ranger's Distress Ink (Aged Mahogany and Scattered Straw) all over and around it, until the tag was covered with ink (and so were my fingers… lol)
I sprayed alcohol on the tag to enhance the colors and to fixate them.
I glued the stone stickers by EK Success - Travel to the tags using a 3D foam tape for extra dimension.
I also added faux postal stamps which I created by stamping, cutting and glazing with Glossy Accents.
These were also glued 3D for some extra dimension.
I chopped the tags' corners with TH scissors, punched holes with the Crop-A-Dile and distressed the edges using Ranger's Distress Ink (Aged Mahogany).
Then I added colorful soft fibers from my stash.
And here are all my 7 tags:
