Enjoy the Journey


 Over at A Vintage Journey   the new Challenge theme  , is  to--' Use every stamp from a set'.


Phew this isn't normally a problem for me, but I hope they will accept  9 from the 10 on this set. There is only so much you can put on a tag and I completely forgot about the ticket . Some are swallowed  up in the background..  As you can see my inspiration came from this set of Tim Holtz stamps. The tag base  had been layered  using a few stencils and coloured with distress inks. Half the tag was embossed with a time related  embossing folder.
I used gilding wax to highlight this area.
Vintage photo, Spiced Marmalade and Shabby Shutters were the colours of distress inks  used.


 I will also be  joining the  challenge over at Tag Along  the  latest theme is 'Quotes'.


Thank you for stopping by, i do so appreciate the comments you leave for me.
