Vintage Time Traveller






Good morning everyone from a very wet and windy Shetland! Today is a bonus day over at A Vintage Journey as the Design Team are sharing tags made in the Tim Holtz style filling the spot which will eventually be filled by winners and Guest Creative Travellers.

I couldn't wait to get started with the wonderful Time Traveller stamp set when it arrived last week along with two new Distress Inks - Salty Ocean and Gathered Twigs.


I inked my base tag using the two DIs and a mixture of blending and wrinkle free - I do this all the time!  Once dry I overstamped using Picket Fence Distress Stain with the wonderful background stamp from Papillon - I just love this effect. I left it to dry naturally and then overstamped again with the wheels stamp in Gathered Twigs, stamping off first on a piece of paper, so this was a second generation inking. I loved it so much I didn't want to cover it up!


One of the time travellers got painted in the same DIs and I added a few bits of tissue tape, labels and that fabulous negative strip which I never tire of.


Thank you for travelling with me this morning and I would suggest that you pop over to A Vintage Journey and look at the wonderful tags made by the rest of the Design Team - they are all so inspiring!

Have a lovely weekend

Brown and blue are some of my favorite color combinations and I love your tag! The layers on your background make a perfect setting for the time traveler. I hear you about not wanting to cover up that stunning background! Hugs!

Just love this, Jennie! You already know I love the colour combination (!), and that Picket Fence stamping is so subtle and so effective. Love the wheels too, and great use of the tissue tape and film strip - brilliant!

The Salty Ocean and Gathered Twigs look fabulous together and I love the overstamping in the Picket Fence. I don't think I would have wanted to cover this up either. The Traveller looks fantastic too, that is such a versatile stamp. Love your tag! Sorry to be so late but you have only just come in my reader for some reason. Anne xx

Hi Jennie....Love the colours you have used in this fabulous tag. The background is amazing and it is a shame to cover it up.

Have a great weekend
