Tuesday Tag Challenge - Postage Stamp

The challenge this week from KardKrazy was to incorporate a postage stamp. Being a member of Postcrossing has given me many interesting stamps to choose from, and I picked this impressive stamp from Japan.



I used distressed inks and paper distresser on the sides of the tag. Japanese rice paper was also distressed and torn, collaged and used as a mat around the postage stamp; the bamboo and floral design was rubber stamped with distress inks, a coin attached to the top with black fibers finish it off. It was great fun to do!
