The Stamp man - Time or Travel

The Stamp Man challenge this week is for you to show us any time or travel themed projects. I have made a mixed media card using some items from the Stamp Man Vintage Style Embellishment kits.

The background was stamped using clear EP and WW DI blended over. I made a faux leather effect tag using tissue paper and an embossing folder and it looks and feels quite realistic. I sewed around the edge and added a piece from an Egyptian bracelet to finish it off.

The stamped images are some that Jill sent me and a frame from the Vintage Style Embellishment Kit.

Supplies used -
Distress inks - Tea Dye, Frayed Burlap, Brushed Corduroy, Wild Honey, Stormy Sky, Victorian Velvet, Weathered Wood.
Distress Markers - Faded Jeans, Victorian Velvet, Tattered Rose, Stormy Sky
Stamped images courtesy of the Stamp Man and Tim Holtz - Travel Labels

This is a close-up of the little label, made by stamping onto painted shrink plastic.

Jill is offering the winner a £10 voucher to her store, so it's well worth an entry don't you think?

See you again soon.
