Getting Cricky Vintage Challenge

I was watching Kristal's show on Ustream on Thursday showing off her new stamps. I actually won a set (Freedom isn't Free) and can't wait to try them out. I was checking out her blog when I saw she is having a challenge this week where anything goes as long as it's vintage. I've been doing mostly cards lately and decided to try something new.

I spent this afternoon making some tags using mostly Tim Holtz inks and stamps. I made this vintage tag that I thought would be great for the challenge. I've never done anything like this before, but I loved how it turned out. I added some charms, one I thought ended up looking like a bird house. I used four different distress inks in each corner and then edged and blended it with Tea Dye Distress Ink. Then I stamped with 3 different stamps. Thanks for stopping by.
