Try it on Tuesday, & A Vintage Journey.

Try it on Tuesday has Birthday or use a mask or stencil as a theme, so I thought I could combine it with a new challenge site 'A Vintage Journey, which is very Tim Holtz orientated. There are some fabulous samples from their design team, and I love vintage.
As I have a special friends birthday coming up, it was an ideal opportunity to made her a card which was all Tim. I inked the background with distress inks, and went over it with on of his stencils. I then stuck on a piece of his new paper stack. I used an old map to cut out an old jalopy to emphasize the journey element. The umbrella man had to make an appearance as well. I stamped up some of Tim's tickets, and the Eiffel tower stamp, plus his very useful 'Enjoy the journey' The whole card could not be complete without a few of his rusted cogs.
