Artful Times DT piece -- Tag with pocket

For my piece on Artful Times my 'tag with pocket' has me wishing I was on the beach somewhere hot.
I have made a large tag and folded the bottom up to form the pocket. It is coloured with distress inks and sprayed with a white mica spray to make it shine. I made the seahorse Tim Holtz style by colouring it with distress ink and adding clear crackle paint rock candy.  I die cut some seaweed and coloured them with distress inks. I added some small 3D dew drops over some stamped bubbles.
For the sandy pocket, I stamped some shells, added a piece of corrugated card from another project and die cut a starfish to go on the edge.
The tiny book in the pocket has a cover of fabric paper, and paper pages stamped with seaside images.

Love the idea of the little book in the pocket. What a lovely project with all the holiday images making us all long for summer days. A really super tag.

The little book is a lovely way of keeping track of your beach themed stamps! Love the main tag too and it makes me yearn of summer...
