A Little Altered Fun } Stepping Out Of My Norm :)

Happy Monday everyone, hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I have been having TONS of fun altering and trying new things lately! Today I wanted to share with you a project I created using some Wendy Vecchi Art Parts. This weeks vintage challenge over at Simon Says Stamp is Show Some Studio 490 here it goes!! I LOVE how it turned out and had so much fun getting inky!!

So on this project the Art Parts I used were: Not Just Flowers, Borders & Bottles, Sample Pack. I used various distress stains (Broken China, Barn Door, Brushed Corduroy) You can't forget the distress inks (Broen China, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Vintage Photo) I also have found a new love....seam binding!! I love the fact that you can crinkle this ribbon and change it to whatever color you want :):)

I used a couple of Wendy Vecchi stamp sets on this one also....I mean how else could I get that face on the art part?? The metal embellies are Idea-ology pieces and I used Beacon glass,metal & more to adhere the metal.

I also created this fun little tag as well. The flower was created using the Sizzix Tattered Floral die and some craft cardstock.

Again on this tag I used lots of stains & inks. The ribbon is seam binding, and the embellies are from Maya Road & a Idea-ology button, and the stamps are from Stampers Anonymous.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a fabulous day!
