Number 5

 Hello friends

Hope you are all good!
Wow! Its nearly at the end of March.....How did that happen?
This year is just flying by!

Today I'm would like to share with you my latest vintage project...
I really wanted to try out the new Tim Holtz Distress crayons
I've used set #3
(I'm a bit late to the distress crayon to the party and yes.... I've so missed out!)
I used the crayons on the mini canvas and they worked a treat!
I like how they have blended together and have given the canvas a really cool worn/distressed look.
(To find out more about the distress crayons and how they work, check out all about them here)
(They are available to buy here)

I used Wendy Vecchi potting shed Archival ink on the back of an Idea-ology cabinet card, added some rub-ons and stamped using Mixed media set (Tim Holtz). 
As I created the piece I kept finding things with the number 5, this number has a personal meaning to me so I went with it.... The playing card is one from my own vintage collection and I decided to highlight it with a very old curtain ring..the other 5`s are from idea-ology

The vintage French bank credit is an original from 1922......I adore the writing...its so neat!
To finish I used a Stampers Anonymous stencil and added the word "respond"
using Archival ink in potting shed.

As always feel free to leave a comment....I really appreciate each and everyone!

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter!
I will be back after the Easter break

bye for now
