It's Tag Friday @ A Vintage Journey Challenge Blog

Welcome everyone and today I am sharing a mixed media tag as its Tag Friday over at A Vintage Journey Challenge Blog. I actually made two of these tags as I was meeting up with  my lovely craft friends Anne Redfern and Tracy Evans. They were both delighted with their gift, especially Tracy, as I had used her A4 stamp, that she personally designed for AALLANDCREATE.
We had the most amazing day together with my mammy and Anne's husband, David, took the most amazing care of us throughout the day x 
It has been some time since I created a mixed media project as we had so many anniversaries, birthdays and wedding between June and August and I had such fun making these tags x 
The background was made using various acrylic paints and a brayer, then I inked up Tracy's background stamp. I also used some of Abs AALLAND CREATE designs too. The stencil used was by Tim Holtz and I used That's Crafty light texture paste. Tim Holtz jar stamp was inked and then die cut and I stamped Zettiology stamps inside for a fun look. The large images are also by Zettiology and were stamped and fussy cut/coloured using Tim's Distress Markers. The sentiment was a wood mounted stamp I have had in my stash for many years and is one of my favourites. A little wash tape added further dimension. 
Thank You so much for visiting as I know how busy everyone is and I do really appreciate comments that are left here on the blog.
