DragonsDream TIO - Vintage, Texture, Flowers

Welcome back for another challenge from the DragonsDream Team - this time it's Trace setting the recipe.

We would like you to incorporate on your tag, texture, flowers, and vintage.  Don't forget to use at least one real stamp.  

To me, vintage summons up slightly sludgy colours, not that there is anything wrong with that, I am a big fan of sludge!

 I started by stencilling some Grunge Paste (Paperartsy) through the mini ledger stencil and let it dry.  Then I mixed a tiny bit of Chocolate Pudding Fresco paint into Stone Fresco, and applied to the tag, with cut and dry foam.
I then added some Squid Ink round the edges, and Treasure Gold (Renaissance) to the tag, hitting the grunge paste and the edges
I stamped the 'dream' girl from the 'One Penny' plate 2 range (Paperartsy) on manilla card, in coffee archival ink and fixed here to the tag with foam pads.

The Cherish stamp is by B-Line designs, stamped on white card coloured with Vintage Photo and Milled Lavendar distress inks. I distressed the edges and swiped some of the same ink round the edges.

The flowers I bought at Newbury last weekend, and I poked a little hole in the tag to stick the stems through.

Added some grungy purple ribbon from my stash.

I'm so liking the lovely textures you're achieving with these pastes Helen and I definitely need to get some.

What about Luis, I'm sure he's off and won't be around when he pops up on my December calendar page.

I love the dream girl stamp so much and you have incorporated her beautifully into this vintage, textured, flowery tag. I tried to add the Dragon's Dream badge, as I was one of the dreamboat 3 last time, but can't seem to add it, although May sent me the html. The problem seems to be with the code. Any ideas? Don't worry, it was just a thought that you might know. Julie Ann x
