Tag Friday - Cre 8 ART

It's tag Friday at A Vintage Journey and I made a fun tag using chipboard.  The thing I love about Tag Friday is that there is no theme, everyone can make what they like.  You can see everything from the team by clicking here.  Enjoy and Cre 8 ART.

I think I will have some fun and enter the challenge over at Frilly & Funkie.
Count Me In

Another great challenge to enter, Simon Says Stamp.
Things with Wings
A few steps along the way-

 Using a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil, I added the numbers using Ranger Embossing Paste.  Next came paint, orange of course.

Next I replaced the stencil over the numbers and rubbed on some DecoArt Metallic Lustre.

Then came a touch of blue using Viva Inka Gold, Steelblue.
I picked out some fun embellishments from my stash and painted them.  The butterfly is from Karen Burniston's Butterfly Pivot card.  The flower was made from used, then dried baby wipes from previous projects.  If you would like to see how it was made, click here for a video from Marta.
I picked out some fun stuff from my stash including a TH Pen Nib and some Grunge Board flourishes.  Add the word ART and it's done.
Have a fun and creative weekend,
