Now it's over to Vicki who has a tag that never was - read more here and her blog to find out more.
Hi, it’s Vicki (that crazy chick) from Calgary, Alberta, I’m elated to be back at AVJ and Celebrating! June, in my world, is full of great things to celebrate; my best friend’s birthday (8th); my parent’s wedding anniversary (10th); a day dedicated honouring the fathers, father-figures, doggy daddys and all amazing men (21st); as well as Io’s birthday, she is turning 6 or 47 in Mountain Dog years (20th), where does the time go?. I also celebrated my third blogiversary on the 12th.
Today I am Celebrating my 100th post!
This is the first tag I never made.
It is inspired by Tim's March tag from 2012.
This is the best photo I have of the butterfly embellishment. Here you can see the collage of copper and gold papers,the colour of the inks to create the patina and the matte finish of Tim's faux rust technique.
Once I curved the wings, to create dimension, and added it to the tag it becomes much harder for camera to catch all the colours and textures. That metallic paper is SO SHINY!
The wood grain stamp is one of my favourites, I use it often for cards. I like how quickly you can create a furniture feel with the simple addition of hardware. The label sticker fits perfectly in the label pull, it was meant to be.
You can see all the step-by-step photos on my blog [dig] that crazy chick.
Thank-you again to all the lovely and talented people at A Vintage Journey for coming up with such a great diversity of challenges and in-turn amazing inspirational projects.

Fabulous Vicki, you're absolutely right that stamp is perfect for creating a gorgeous wood like background and your butterfly is stunning. I want to know more about how this tag came into being so I know where I'm popping off to real darn quick.
