Our generous sponsor is offcourse Simon Says Stamp....wohooooo and what a fabby prize they have for one lucky winner.....

Isn't it just great.....

Oke here we go....this week we have a fun Challenge the theme is 
You can make whatever you like but it has to fit the challenge as well as the Vintage part......
This is what I made.....

I wanted to make 3 tags because I think it's the little things that makes everything big in life....

My favourite technique is heat embossing, when melted you achieve such fabulous texture and dimension.  First I worked on the background with distress inks and played around with the distress stains and a paint dabber. And last but not least the Copper Embossing powder. Just love it. 

Really like this flower, it comes from a die....cannot even remember which one it is but I just love it.....

The Wendy butterfly is my favourite, all you regular visitors will know that I am totally in love with these fabbylicious Butterflies from The Wendy.... I played with the Sprocket GearsGame Spinners

and embossed the butterflies from the Embossing folder and offcourse could not resist some crackle on top. I just love the little things that make life BIG.
So I will show you the Tags seperatly.....

This way  you can see it better....see the rich embossed swirls....I have used the copper embossing powder on it, the embossing folder is from The Tim....and I really love it a is the Springtime one.....
The butterflies are offcourse from the Wendy.....don't you just love these butterflies.....I sure do.....
Played around with the distress inks and distress stains and the white on top is from a Paint Dabber

The same is with this embossed swirls but I used the fabulous sentiment from the Tim's stampset and those words are so true.....the little things make life BIG......and played with lace to make a bow and at the bottom some lace too....the flowers ....I don't remember where what the die is called hahah so if anyone knows just tell me oke? 

And here is the last of the three little tags.....really like this one too....the border with butterflies is made with the same embossing folder from the it....offcourse I just HAD to use the crackle on top because everyone knows that I am a Crackle head lol.......

So there ya have it....the whole project when it is wanna have fun too?????????And you can even win a fabulous prize from our generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp ...........come on over to the Challenge Blog.....and do join into the fun. I had lots of fun...can you tell......
