Be my guest on a Vintage Journey - With a Flourish

Hello crafty friends (:o)
I was very happy to have been asked along to *A Vintage Journey* as a guest designer this month.

Honestly, you can't go on a vintage journey without at least a little bit Tim Holtz

My journey started with a black tag size 8, stamped with the text stamp from the Stampers Anonymous *Papillion* Stamp Set and Versamark - heat embossed with clear embossing powder

The tag was then painted with the Acrylic Paint Dabber *aqua*. After the paint was dry, i've used a baby wipe to take off the paint from the embossed script

A little bit distressing around the edges with Distress Ink for the finish look

The grungeboard flourish was painted with *pitch black* Dabber and a coat of Distress Crackle Paint *rock candy* on top

A little bit *aqua* to match the colour of the tag

Butterflies stamped on acatate

Coloured with alkohol ink *caramel* and *pool*

Stamped with Archival black on kraft cardstock

Easy cutting with the Sizzix Alterations *French Flights*

5 pages of corrugated cardboard, roughly distressed with the Distrezz - it - All from Zutter. The pages are sprayed with Distress Inks in blue and brown colours. Partly heat embossed with embossing powder and painted with the Dabber *aqua* and *gold*

Idea - ology *framed* alpha parts  painted with gold, too

See, even if i love to use acrylic paint i'm also a scrapper and i don't mind to cut paper.
I've glued paper from the *french industrial* stash to the background. Sprayed some ink. A giant tag forms a pocket on the left side for some secrets. I've painted and cut a sheet of Burlap paper from DCWV with the frameworks die. More painted alpha parts to highlight the picture from a meeting of my Boss, favorite artist and Executive Creative Consultant of DecoArt  *Andy Skinner* and me.

Thanks to Vintage Journey for the invite
thank you for being part of my creative outbreaks and leaving your appreciated comments

Happy monday

Oh, Elly - I can't believe I missed this - and at A Vintage Journey too (I'm hanging my head in shame... but it was right in the middle of my New York job, so that's why, I suppose). What an astounding project you shared with us - all of my favourite things in one place. The colours, the corrugated card, the alcohol inked butterflies, that fabulous black tag - every detail gives delight... wow, wow and wow again!
