I used some Paris labels for the backgrounds with denim, mushroom and rust inks on the fragments. All of it is layered on a denim tag with a medallion stamp in vintage photo distress embossing. As usual, I had a blast doing this, if only my day job didn't cramp my style!

I stamped the crown, wings and saying on acetate for a different texture. The tag background is from the distress embossing challenge, one that didn't make the cut for that week anyway... and I used the distress inks with the blending tool for the background, that kindof rubbed off alot more of the distress crystals. The girl profile is a craft stick covered in a paper bag I've had around forever. Fun again and during the week even, wow!

Once again trying a technique and materials I've not used before. Fun as usual. I did several tags, I liked this one the best. I don't seem to have enough time to do much more than try the technique, someday I'll be able to actually make a card. I'm so impressed and inspired by all of the nice pieces out there!

That's Light Blue on top, looks like white in the picture, I like it much better in person ; ) So once again I had fun with this. It really pushes me out of my box, which is usually a very large space since I tend to ignore the box anyway... having so much fun with this and rediscovering the mass of materials I've been collecting for sometime!
Ok, just made it back from vacation very late last night, and I really wanted to do all of the challenges, that's part of the challenge right? So anyway, I tried several variations and I liked a couple different ones. This one uses red pepper over the black, with a gold dry-rub on top, I think it looks sorta vintage which I associate with Shabby Chic. As usual, there are alot of spectacular and different pieces on the home page which I really enjoy. Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
