Wish you were here


I have the pleasure of hosting the latest challenge at A Vintage Journey - the theme is to use every stamp in a set. I used one of Tim Holtz Visual Artistry sets - French Market with the addition of a hash tag sentiment.
I love the way Tim uses layers in his work; so this project really focusses on that rather than lots of techniques. It's all about the layers and composition.


I used most of the stamps to create different background layers to my card, saving the Eiffel Tower as the top layer and the postage stamps to embellish. I couldn't resist adding some crackled hearts as additional embellishments.




Do head on over to A Vintage Journey to see some more fabulous projects from the Design Team. 

Thanks for looking.
