carry-on lugagge tags

I made some carry-on luggage tags for my friends!

They are laminated and, on the back of the tag, there is a little frame with the name of the luggage owner.
I used the Hydrangea stamp from Hero Arts. The background stamp is "Friends definition" from Hero Arts. The flowers have been coloured with Copic markers.
I liked making these tags and I will make more with different flowers and backgrounds (stay tuned!).

Stamps: Hydrangea, Friends definition (Hero Arts)

Ink: Memento (tuxedo black, pear tart)

Accessories: copic markers, laminated pouches, nestabilities, large eyelets.

I stamped the violets on Pure Luxury White cardstock from Gina K and I coloured them with Copic marker.

Inks: Distress Inks (Scattered straw, antique Linen), Memento (Tuxedo Black, Grape Jelly, Bamboo Leaves)
