Vintage Tag

Hi! I was inspired by Rachel Black to make a Vintage tag. I used some flowers from my stash, some lace ribbon and a lot of glimmer mists. The old picture I printed out from internet and then fussycut it. I colored the flowers and the lace.

Enjoy the Journey Tag

Hello, everyone! This tag I made for the Our Creative Corner October Challenge - Go Rustic.
It is not embellished much but I used a lot of different colors. For the background I used several different glimmer mists, then I used the distress embossing powder Vintage Photo randomly to get the rust effect. I went over with the powder on the wings as well  and then I put on top of them Vintaj patina verdigris. I used several alcohol inks and Vintaj patina on the pen nib.

On Time Tag

Hi, all! Today I made a tag related to time, clocks, metal, steampunk... I used a lot of different glimmer mists, distress inks, distress crackle paints, alcohol inks to achieve the metal look of the tag. Then I went over with the Rub N Buff in gold.  Also, I used the watch parts, swivel clasp, brads, game spinner. Most of the embellishments are from Tim Holtz since I love everything with his signature :) I love gears and cogs and other metal embellishments as well as the rust metal look.

Seasonal inspiration...

Hi, everyone! I was inspired by seasonal colors to make this tag. I am Falling in Love with seasonal colors so I used almost all the seasonal colors I had for the background and the leaves. For the background I used several distress paints, perfect pearls mists, distress inks...The leaves I stamped with Tim Holtz stamps (Falling Leaves) and then I colored them with various distress inks. Some of them I cut from vellum and some from the manila cardstock. Also, I colored the seam binding with some distress stains and paints. The ink bottle I covered with distress crackle paint in Black Soot and then covered with distress crackle paint in Clear Rock Candy. For the bottom of the tag I used Springtime embossing folder.
I, also, used Tim Holtz Odds and Ends stamp set in black Archival ink and I stamped the Paris postal stamp in Sepia Archival ink.

Photographs book front cover

Hi, all! This is my entry for a Vintage Journey Heavy Metal Challenge. I decided to make the book front cover and I used different perfect pearls mists, distress paints, alcohol inks and distress embossing powder vintage photo to get the metal rust look which I love. Also, I used distress crackle paint Clear Rock Candy to cover the camera. I learned some techniques from Tim Holtz's blog and Youtube channel and had a lot of inspiration from him since his ideas are unique. I love Tim's work and all of his products. I would like to thank to all members of the Vintage Journey design team for the inspiration :)

October Tag

Hi! This is my October Tag. I used all the techniques Tim Holtz showed on his blog post 12 Tags of 2014-October but I used different stencils, colors...and my version of October tag is not a halloween tag but the Fall tag. For the technique with embossing and stenciling I used the Numbered stencil from Tim instead of using some stamps. I used the embossing ink through the stencil and then used the same stencil on a piece of cardstock, since I don't have a Tim's mask, cut the numbers (1and 0), used repositional glue to glue this image down on my embossed image on the tag and go with my stenciling using the modeling paste. For the pumpkin, I draw the image, colored with my gelatos, covered with gel medium then I used my artistic pens to give some accents to the image. I put a glossy accent on the top of the image like Tim did. For the leaves, I cut the shapes with Tim's dies, stamped them using Tim's leaves stamps, then I used several distress inks to color them and I covered them with distress crackle paint in Clear Rock Candy. For the background I used Woodgrain stencil and several color sprays (I don't have the new distress stain sprays). On the top of the tag I put a hand dyed seam binding ( I used the same colors as for the leaves).

Autumn Tag

Hi, all! This is my attempt to try some of the Tim  Holtz's techniques. For the background I used distress paints and inks. Then I stamped it with LaBlanche stamps. For the plate I used alcohol inks and glitter to get the rust look. Leaves are stamped, inked and then cut (Tim Holtz stamps and movers and shapers dies). I used Tim Holtz Merchantile stamp set for the bottle, inked it, cut with Tim Holtz  die (movers and shapers) and covered it with distress crackle paint Clear Rock Candy. The ticket is stamped with Tim Holtz calendar stamp. I put hand dyed seam binding on the top.
