We're on the road again. We're in Somerset, NJ this week for another Scrapbook Expo. Hope you get a chance to stop by and say HI.

Challenge TRCC#18 Vintage

I've been working on this tag book as a present for my paternal grandmother. She came to town for a week and we took a day to go visit. I took a few photo's but didn't have time to futz with them. I really like how this book is turning out. We're in Somerset, NJ this weekend (The Rubber Cafe team) so it'll be a couple of weeks before it's finished...but I wanted to take a little time to show off the start. I'll be sure to post pictures when it's all dressed up.

I've used several stamps to fininsh this up. One of the background stamps makes a perfect journal spot. I used the large celtic rosette to add a little touch of vintage decore. Fleurididy 1 makes a beautiful background and accent. I had die cut some butterflies and had the negative piece left over...used it as a template and stippled vintage sepia to create a shadded butterfly. I left the template down and stamped Fleurididy 1 over the wings for accent. I used a smaller die cut butterfly and sponged Scraphappy glue over the entire butterfly. When the glue dried I added you're so fine glitter. The paper is Ella Blue from GCD studios.

The Rules are Simple:

I am new to this blog so am not entirely sure how to go about it. Hopefully I did it right and all the linking worked. The tag I entered is more a mixed media then a stamping card but it uses techniques I saw demonstrated at the NJ scrapbook Expo Rubber Cafe booth - Thank You! The tag itself was lifted from the Teresa Collins stampmaker demo: awesome machine and on my short list of toys to purchase in the future.
