jff challenge

Second post of the day as I am still playing catch up. Will just about squeeze under the wire I think this week with my entry for the just for fun challenge blog. This week the theme is mixed media which threw me into a complete tizz Lol. I have no idea why, after all I probably use mixed media a lot of the time anyway.  I decided to make a tag, the size of which is very large. I used tumbled glass and stormy sky Distress inks oversprayed with glimmer mist for the background. I ran a piece of the Ranger sticky backed foil through my cuttlebug with Tim Holtz brick texture fade folder. I then inked this up with alcohol inks. The stamps are a mixture of Elusive Images, Tim Holtz and Artistic Stamper. Cannot say I am completely happy with how this has come out but if enough people like it I will enter the swap this month. Meant to enter the swap last month of course but story of my life never got round to it. Thanks for looking x Vinny


  1. Nothing quiet like the last minuite is there lol
    Love the foil and you sense of humor with the snail :)
    Shame about last months swaps but look forward to you joining in this month :)
    Luv Von x

  2. Hope you do join the swap this your tag is great fun. Its odd how when something we do all the time is brought into focus its as if we have never done it been caught like that more than once LOL. Thank you for joining us at Just for fun XOXO Zoe

  3. Nice tag and as you say we probably use mixed media all the time without realising it but when 'put on the spot' there is a tendency to panic!!

  4. Hi Vinny. Playing a bit of catch up myself. Great tag. Love the colours. The texture really brings it all together with the wording.
    Regards Florence.
