I saw this challenge at Linda Elbournes blog and just had to have a go.  I have always admired the work of Wendy Vecchi and now that I own some of her fab stamps I am in heaven.  It was a real pleasure to just create for me without a deadline, a class looming or any pressure whether work or self imposed.  Anyways here is my take on the latest challenge over at Simons Says Stamp and Show

I used a Papermania Bare-book cover, Distress Inks (Walnut Stain, Broken China, Rusty Hinge, Crushed Olive and Frayed Burlap), a blending tool, Cut’n’Dry foam, Walnut Stain Distress Stickles, Wendy Vecchi stamps, Tim Holtz stamps, Grunge Paper, Grunge Alphabet Soup letters, a Maya Road pin, cotton lace, K&Co papers (from about 6 years ago), a Tim Holtz mask, beads, wire, Tim Holtz Alterations dies, Cuttlebug machine, silver eyelets (at least 8 years old), press-studs, printed twill tape, Jet Black Archival Ink, Cloud White Versamagic Ink, white mat board and a button.
