Always Vintage

I completed this last week but somehow forgot to post it. Not a productive week so far as scrapping is concerned because of all the Christmas prep and the madness that comes with it. After a day's carefully planned shopping, I can say I am DONE. Time to relax, turn the TV off (so as NOT be enticed to buy more stuff) and have a cup of tea.

The tags were from the Fashionista range of Graphic 45 and the fabulous lace was from Bluemoon Scrapbooking. Flowers are Prima of course!

The story of this tag is one of discovery.
Not one thing I did in this tag turned out as I excepted.

First, I stamped the script upside down. Second, the lion stamp bled coz the tag was still wet. It was my first time with Tim Holtz' ink blender so I got a little carried away, hence the sharp lines at the sides as well. Third,
I wanted to emboss the lion but somehow the embossing powder worked everywhere else but the lion. Lastly, after taking out the Perfect Pearls from the packaging and chosen a pot, I opened said pot on the wrong end so I ended up with glimmer powder all over the tag and my work mat.
The reverse side was just as messy - I went nuts using the crackle paint, remembering Tim Holtz putting on layers and layers of it in his tutorial. It's so thick, the tag seems so rubbery. It turned out quite unique!

Oh my, how funny, it seems you took it ''all in stride", though!
