Hello and welcome,
Today I have a piece I created for A challenge over at A Vintage Journey!! Sandy is our host for this
one and she has chosen Wings & Things. Here is the link so you can check out all the amazing pieces this fortnight..... .http://www.vintagejourney.com/2014/06/challenge-8-wings-things.html
Tim Inspiration: On my tag I have placed the bow at the bottom of the tag because I really wanted to use my new Tim die... Tag & Tie at the top. SSSShhhh... I've been shopping and topped up my die supplies with another 14. Well I do need to catch up before the next lot come out. RIGHT??? I'm sure you would agree..ha. That will be another post.
I did use a technique called Layering Stencil: Embossing from Compendium of Curiosities 3 which I love. A lot of inking, stamping, distressing, glittering, a rub-on and colouring was all done here. My colour palette was Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo, Pumice Stone and Black. The lovely metal flower and bird are a gift from Annette Green. Thanks Annette they came in really handy for this piece.

I wonder why Tim thought of replicating a bread tie into a die?? What a great idea though. Mine is cut from grunge board.
I was trying to figure out my Bow Easy and it sort of failed, so this was the result. I'm sorry there was no step by step as I begun this piece on a crafty day in another studio. Thank so much for popping by.......enjoy the rest of your day!!
