MMW - Vintage





Hi everyone,

Well that month just flew by didn't it! It's time for another monthly challenge over at MMW and this month's theme is: Vintage, chosen by my talented teamie Lena.

So we'd love to see any creations that are aged either naturally or artificially that have mixed media roots. We've all got photos and rusting powder haven't we at the very least ;)



Our sponsors for this challenge are



and they're treating the winner to 3 free images from their Etsy shop.


For my creation I used a recycled piece of wood and a genuine rusty vintage nail for the butterfly's body, having been inspired by our lovely Ingrid's logo for the blog of course ;)










Paperartsy paints and crackle paste,  Distress Spray stains, Tim Holtz butterfly, Stamps in the background and on the tag are: Prima, Crafters Companion and Kaisercraft.


I am entering this into the following challenges:

Country view challenges, Industrial

Sandy and Amelies Steampunk challenge, Steampunk/Industrial

Take it, Make it, Anything goes

Our Creative Corner, Return of the challenge (I chose Go Rustic)

Simon says Monday, Make your own background




Hope you like it
