Wanna see a movie?

     Have you guys noticed I've been into tags lately?  What's up with that!  LOL  You've got me.  I just know I've been having fun.  "Anything Goes" is our theme this week at The Kraft Journal.  You might notice a couple of changes there.  We have said good bye to a couple of our beloved members, Audrey Petit and Kim Duran and are saying hello to our new members, Debbie Carriere and Debbie Marcinkiewicz.  I just know you're going to love what they have to bring to the table so make sure you check out todays post at TKJ.  PLUS!  We have a very special guest designer this month (starting next week), my bloggie buddy Dorcas of Dorcas Designs.  This girl is the queen of using Prisma's on kraft paper.  In fact, I should probably have picked another medium to use until next month so I don't look so bad.  LOL
     So.... I decided to create a fun nostalgic tag using a Buff French "Carte Postale" Postcard Shipping Tag as my base.  I used the Tim Holtz rusted enamel technique using Old Paper and Vintage Photo Distress inks on the postcard and then added some Vintage Dictionary page pieces.  The marquee was created with a die cut piece of chipboard that was inked, embossed, and glitzed with rhinestones.  The marquee frames a 7 Gypsies Mini Receipts Ephemera Label and has a piece of Tim Holtz film strip ribbon stapled to it.  The stars were cut from chipboard and Kraft Glassine.  The glassine was inked with gold alcohol ink.  The watch image is a 7 Gypsies rub on from Steampunk Time Rubbings.  There's a bottle cap sticker from the Lost and Found Salvage Stickers and some black Twill Tape.  I just love this Charlie Chaplin image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  It's colored with Prismas and was printed on Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock multiple times, layered, inked, and covered with a coat of Rock Candy Crackle paint.  I should have taken a picture of my table after this was made.  LOL  Everything but the kitchen sink was piled up on it.
     Easy peasy anything goes challenge so pull out that kraft paper or Kraft Outlet products and join in the fun to start the new year off.
     I couldn't find too many challenges that my little tag would fit into, but here are a couple:
