What a challenge this one proved to be! You'd think it would be easy, just take a postcard, any card, chop it up a bit and voila, tag done. Hmm. Not when you only have a treasured stash of antique and vintage postcards. Have you any idea how much time I spent just looking through my postcards, trying to find one which I could possibly cut? Hours, I tell you, HOURS. I pulled out a few, and then put them back again, having made all sorts of excuses for not using them. Then I decided to be cheeky and scan some in and use the scans, but I felt too guilty about cheating and abandoned the scans for now. They will make some nice tags though one of these days.
After hours of fruitless searching through my boxes of cards, I finally decided to dump the idea of using a vintage postcard. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I almost gave up on the tag altogether. But then, I remembered that I had a set of three modern postcards with beautiful antique images, and that proved to be the solution. I grabbed one, put a tag over it to find a part of the image which would work, and cut. Yep, I destroyed a card. With scissors. Big ones. And even though it was a modern card, it still hurt, lol. Then it was just a case of adding a few bits and pieces, and the tag was finally done -
See? I really really did cut a postcard -
Please let the next challenge be less painful, lolol! Ah, errm, seems the next challenge is already up, sigh, I am off to find out what this week's challenge is going to do to me ;-).
