Tim Holtz Butterflies go Vintage for Cards Galore Challenge.

Hi all just a quickie... I was delighted to be asked to be a Guest Designer for the Cards Galore Challenge blog this week.... Oooooo never been asked to 'guest' before ... Happy day!

The theme is Vintage and I must say I don't often 'do' Vintage cos of the dark colours!  But I'm happy with this tag ... Tim Holtz Butterflies and Honeycomb Stamps, stamped onto some 'screwed up' Glassine Paper with a distress inks background, then another tag cut using some Acetate that I splodged over with various Alcohol Inks before plonking it on the front!
I hope you are impressed with my grasp of the technical expressions!

Quick and easy ... American Seam Binding coloured with Distress Stains and job done ...
Please go over and have a look at the Cards Galore Challenge There are some super samples from the Challenge Design Team. My friend Barbara is one of them .... she has made some stunning Autumn Cards.

Thanks for looking
Eileen xx
