Pure Vintage

Time for my next DT piece for Creative Expressions using stamp set Wrinkles Don't Hurt.  I decided to create a vintage tag this time around.
My background is coloured with Distress Stain Vintage Photo and spritzed with water. Once dry I bleached out areas with a brush.
I added some vintage lace which I gathered and added the sentiment to the top with a memo pin.
I have also added a Idea-Ology Word Stick "LIVE" which I thought was appropriate with the sentiment.
The image has been masked and then stamped three times using black Archival Ink. The text VINTAGE has been printed on my computer and added to jump rings with Glossy Accents.

Thanks for stopping by.  Tracy x x

You cannot help but smile at this. Such fun but at the same time the attention to detail you bring to all your artwork. Love the gathered lace and the use of bleach.
