It's Tag Friday @ A Vintage Journey Challenge Blog

Hi everyone xx I hope you are well and staying safe x Today I am sharing a shabby chic tag that I created for AVJ . Whenever there are five Fridays in the month we have a tag Tag Friday post, which followers/visitors can enter x
It has been some time since I heat embossed some stamped images on top of Tim's new distress ink release "Speckled Egg" It's such a lovely soft colour and works well with the white embossing powder that I used. The stamp is one of Tim's and if youwant to know which stamp set just asks as I dont have it to hand right now x
The lace has been in my stash for ages and it was lovely to play with them, laying various pieces until I was happy. The cluster on the bottom are fussy cut digital images and the butterfly is punched using Tim's die, which is a favourite of mine.

There's also time to enter our monthly challenge, "Watercolour Wonders", which Deb is hosting, so why not check it out. There is plenty of inspiration on our blog too and Barbara has provided a wonderful card -making post using Tim Holtz thinlits dies.

Take care and hope to see you there

Happy Crafting xx
