Tag Tuesday - Vintage - The Telegram
For this tag I focused on a vintage form of communication, sadly the telegram is no longer around. In these days of computers the pen and paper is sadly hardly used. I love it when I get a snail mail from a friend. Cardstock tag with distressed edges inked with brown ink. I stamped some script onto a piece of onion paper that I had stained with cold coffee to age. I then set light to the edges and blew it out immediately to leave a charred edge to the paper. An old telegram and a fountain pen cut from a printed sheet I had in my stash were added. A pair of wire glasses, clock hands, a metal embellishment with the word remember and some frayed string finish the tag.
