Hi everyone. Today sees the start of a new challenge over at A Vintage Journey. I saved my Christmas present this year so I could buy some of the new stuff released at CHA so have included some of these newly acquired goodies in my tag today.
Now talking of goodies..... in two weeks time we see the 1st anniversary on A Vintage Journey! Do make a note of the date - 6th March. It will be the start of our second year and we will be celebrating with some exciting goodies up for grabs.
So our theme today is 'Special Numbers' - interpret this how you wish - birthdays, house numbers - whatever is special to you. I don't personally have any significant numbers so decided to work with one of the conventional lucky numbers. ( It is true I do have a special birthday this year - eeeeek - but it isn't for 6 months yet - and not sure turning 50 is something I wish to celebrate - LOL!)
I started my tag by adding texture paste through Tim's new flourish stencil and once dry sprayed with victorian velvet and pumice stone distress sprays. I later distressed the edges and added some black soot.
I took the letters for LUCKY from Tim's new alphanumeric thinlets and carefully cut out the word from my tag. I took some card and lightly covered with cracked pistachio DI and lightly stamped the numbers stamp from the new perspective stamp set onto the card. I cut this to fit the back of the tag so you can see it through the cut out letters.
I stamped the numbers in black archival onto another piece of card and then stamped the butterfly from the same stamp set with versamark over the top. I clear embossed and then added milled lavender DI and black soot around the edges.
On another piece of card I had been playing with the new scribbles and splats die. I cut a scribble out of some card sprayed with victorian velvet with milled lavender DI added.
The Number 7, the seam binding and the chit chat stickers are all coloured with cracked pistachio distress ink. Before putting it all together I added some remnant rubs to the tag.
Thanks for visiting today - have a great weekend.
