A Vintage Journey

I discovered a new (to me anyway) blog from reading posts by the lovely and talented Jenny whose blog I follow regularly.  It is called A Vintage Journey and as it seems ages since I played around with inks, masks and so on I decided to produce something inspired by her excellent tutorial.  I love all things 'Tim Holtz' and my wish list for Ranger products keeps on growing although I do have quite a selection anyway.  Basically her tutorial showed ways of making backgrounds using masks and stencils - me being me I seem to have covered up quite a lot of mine but I expect you get the idea (should have used a smaller image). The current challenge is ALL ABOUT HIM and I do happen to know a man who studies dragonflies, damsel flies and so on.

Various masks - Tim Holtz, Ranger
Stamps - Stampers Anonymous Classic Favourites and Simple Sayings
Distress Inks - Broken China, Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire
Number plate sticker - Tim Holtz
Tattered Banner die - Tim Holtz strip die


  1. I'm so pleased Val!!!!!! You can probably hear my high pitched squealing from there - lol! Well done you on pulling out those stencils, inks and stamps and creating a fantastic card. It's so thrilling to know you were inspired by my tutorial and even more that you've found A Vintage Journey. Delighted to welcome you along for the ride! Thank you so much for playing along with the latest challenge. I hope to see more like this. Jenny x

  2. I am really pleased too Val, that Jenny inspired you to join in our challenge and even more pleased that you entered my choice of challenge! Your stenciling is beautiful in the background and I love that dragonfly stamp, you have used it beautifully. Thanks so much for joining in our 'All About Him' challenge at A Vintage Journey. Anne x

  3. Fab entry to the challenge Val. I love the artwork the team show over on A Vintage Journey even though I've not had chance to join in yet. I love the image you used as your focal point and have had that set on my wish list seemingly for ever, lol!
