Memories at Try It On Tuesdays and a DT Call

Hi Folks,
Time for a new challenge at Try It On Tuesday and this time its Memories, and for the month of November we have a fabulous new sponsor,  Crafty Embellies

who are offering our November winner a £10 voucher to spend in their on-line store.

Also, don't forget we are having a DT Call, which is open until 20th November, so if you're interested, please add DT after your name in the linky.

For my card - Memories had to be vintage, well nothing new there I here you say!
My card base I used Tim's Marbled Stains technique using Picket Fence, Old Paper,Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick Distress Stains and then stamped with Inkylicious Vintage Script Create a Collage stamps.  The main image is TH, as is the film strip, stamped onto acetate. My flower is a TH Tattered Floral die, coloured with distress inks, the gauze (bandage) was dyed with the left over inks from the card base.

  I am entering this in
  Its all about the Vintage - Make your own background
  The Pink Elephant - Favourite colouring medium - mines always inks
  Eclectic Ellapu - Its a Vintage thing
  No Matter which Challenge - Photo insp.
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes

That's it for now, and thanks for looking.
