Seeing Double

I decided to play along with A Vintage Journey challenge today, the theme of "through the looking glass" had me pulling out products I had not used for a while which is always fun.
I began with a piece of Tim Holtz textured surfaces which I matted onto a piece of corrugated card, perfect textural piece for my design. I applied Wendy Vecchi Crackled Texture Paste trough Tim Holtz Splotches Layering Stencil to add yet further texture and another layer to my design.
I die cut two mirrors from Speciality Stamping Paper using Tim Holtz Deco Mirror Die and coloured with Archival Re-inkers. I then die cut a second circle from Speciality Stamping Paper and stamped the face image onto each using Tim Holtz Nature Walk stamp set. I die cut a third layer from Clearly For Art and stamped mirror image onto the front using StazOn ink. I also added Remnant Rubs for added interest.
From this picture you can see the crackle a lot clearer. I also included Black Embossing Paste applied through Tim Holtz Dot Fade Layering Stencil.
I also included a flash card which I aged with Distress Inks and added a Remnant Rub, clip and number brad along with a piece of film strip ribbon. I also added a vintage optical lense stamped with the bird from the Nature Walk stamp set.
Thank so much for stopping by, hope you like my interpretation of the challenge.

I would also like to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which this time around is "Anything Goes".

Love your mirror images! I had to come over and see hoping I hadn't seen your project and inadvertently done something similar. :) Beautiful project Tracy! Love the canvas and all the beautiful embellishments!

A fantastic project Tracy, I love how you used the hand mirrors - very clever and the embossing in the background looks amazing on the textured surface. Thanks so much for joining in at A Vintage Journey. Hugs, Anne xx

This is such a great creation! I always enjoy seeing your work because it has so many clever details. There is so much to like, but I especially love what you did with the "photo" flashcard. I like how it's so weathered and how you added the "limited edition" notation. This whole piece is stellar and I love how you incorporated encouraging sentiments on the handles of the mirrors. Fabulous work, as always, and I'm so glad you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
