Tag on Tag

Hi everyone, it's good to be here again with a new theme to play with. 
Thank you so much for the kind comments on my 1950s tag last week. I thought there were so many wonderful varieties to enjoy looking at. 
This week I have made a tag that will end up the way of all other previous bus tags. 
Yup ~ in the wee man's bedroom :)  But before it does of course, I will share it here.

First I made the background using three or four masks and two or three distress inks. Then I stamped with my Portobello Road set, using several masks that I made out of some plastic, (that was covering some cheese), so that I could stamp several times without going over previous images. I also stamped the phone box onto a separate, smaller tag and cut around it. Quite a good fit I thought. 
I coloured the buses, taxi's and lamps with the same distress inks from the background and a paint. Finally, the tie was coloured with paints. 
Now, until next time, thank you for looking ((hugs)) Mo :o) x
