I just love the vintage style!

Last night I was playing with a tag. I was in a dark mood as my uncle passed away, a fact that always makes people think about life, its purpose etc. I had already made my art journal entry, so I decided to play with distress reinkers and an #8 size manilla tag. I added some glimmer mists, mica pigments and clear crackle paint and the background was ready.

The embossed tree is from Craft Concepts, the lamppost is from Sfragidomania the letters are from grungeboard inked and then treated with UTEE. The birds are a Tim Holtz stamp on grungeboard pierced and embossed and the metal part from my stash.

So here it is, unfortunately in a rather dark picture, as the weather here is stormy and I did not have enough natural light. The real tag is even better, but as I wanted to submit it in Simon Says Stamp & Show, it will have to suffice.
