Stencil It with A Vintage Journey

Today I'm sharing an art journal entry for the current challenge at A VINTAGE JOURNEY  where the theme is 'Stencil It'.
I started by sponging pink chalk paint randomly over the white page, then using Distress Ink Seedless Preserve straight from the container to add the lines, almost like files.  Next I used a Tim Holtz Clock stencil and DI Dusty Concord on the top and the same stencil with white texture paste on the bottom.
The word 'Time' is stencilled using Imagination Crafts purple Sparkle Medium, outlined in black pen.  I typed the banner and aged with DI Vintage Photo and edged with Seedless Preserve, before rolling the ends. The flowers are cut using Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge.

Artist Trading Cards

A quick post today to share my three partner swap cards for the UKATC August swap.

This is a free choice but all the cards must be different as they go to the same person.  So to start with a sewing-themed ATC, using Crafty Individuals' collage set and Distress Ink in Broken China and Black Soot.
  I stamped the background first on white card, then stamped the whole set onto white card which had been sprayed with Glimmer Mist Spun Sugar, before cutting out the individual elements to collage.
For this one I used cream card, stamped with CI crackle background in DI Vintage Photo.  The tag is from a pack with the addition of raffia and the dragon fly embellishment.
Finally I tore watercolour paper and added white texture paste with Tim Holtz faded dots stencil, then dripped some Glimmer Mist in Walnut gold randomly over the top. The tag features a CI collage stamp on white card inked with DI Fired Brick.
