Distressed Memories!!!

Hiya everyone!

This is my first play with my new Tim Holtz distress inks! I couldn't decide which to buy so I bought all 36!!! (Naughty me Lol)
I saw a few challenges for vintage/distress/memories so I came up with this.

Image of lady from vintage belle CD - I distressed the image then used a few layers of clear embossing powder on it, scrunched it so it cracked then used a bit more ink
Papers and ornate frame from Summer Driggs wonderful stuff
Inks used:- Vintage photo, tea dye and walmut stain
Prima flowers, buttons and brads from stash
Sentiment done on computer - fonts used are century gothic and Susie's hand

I'm entering it into these challenges:-

Secret crafter - distressing
Sentimental Sundays - flowers and a sentiment
Cuttlebug spot - embossing and flowers
Kaboodle Doodle - embossing
Practical scrappers - Buttons
Sisterhood of scrap - flowers
Crazy challenge - buttons/brads/eyelets
Shabby tea room - Comforts of home (photo inspiration)
Flourish - Vintage
Papertake weekly - Something different
A spoonful of sugar - 3D something (frame)
Tuesday taggers - Memories

Thanks for looking!!!

1st card for weeks!!!

Hiya Everyone!

After a break of several weeks this is the 2nd card I have made for a friend. Apologies for not getting any blogging done but I have had a major clear out of crafty and non-crafty stuff which took up a lot of my time. I made over £200 so I treated myself to 18 stickles glitter glues, the 56 set promarkers (which completes my collection) and all 36 Tim Holtz distress inks. I have still to use my inks although I have filled in the colour chart. I also went a bit mad in ikea on crafty storage so I'm almost happy with craft room although I'm still waiting for my hubby to make me a shelf with cubby holes type thing. Hopefully, I will venture back into blogland soon and start entering the challenges again.

Tatty teddy image from somewhere I don't remember
Papers from pink petticoat
Silver Card, ribbon, diamantes from stash
Stickles glitter glue on flower (cotton candy)
"30" hand cut - I really need a cricut Lol!
Sentiment done on computer - font is clear typewriter

Thanks for looking!
