A Vintage Journey down Route 66

When I saw that there was a new challenge starting called A Vintage Journey I was ecstatic. This challenge will center around Vintage/Shabby projects which have been Tim Holtz inspired. This is right up my alley! I have played in Tim Holt'z sandbox as he has a tag challenge monthly, but I don't always have all the items he uses to play along with his techniques. There are not any other challenges like this one, (that I know of) and I was so excited to see it starting up.

They have room for one more DT member, and while I would love to be part of this team, I am not sure I can fit it in to my full DT schedule that I have now. So this one will just have to be on my wish list for a later date. I have a few challenges and artists that I love, so they will have to be on my "To Do" list for future design teams.

So for their first challenge, it is anything goes. I have a birthday card that I created for a friends father that I thought would be perfect for this challenge.

The alcohol ink, word band and stamps are all Tim Holtz products. I got an idea to do a Route 66 card. I found both maps on the internet and used card stock from DCWV Rustic Stack. This is one of my favorite stacks and the paper is all vintage looking.

Here is a closer look:

Here is the Route 66 map. You are welcome to it and works great for background.

So if you like making Vintage style cards and using Tim Holtz products, you must check out this new Challenge. I am sure it is going to be lots of fun!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Ends March 20 - A Vintage Journey - Anything Tim
Ends March 12 - Paper Crafting Journey - Male/Manly
Ends March 12 - Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
Ends March 18 - Nutcrackers - Boys Boys Boys
Ends March 10 - Sisterhood of Crafting - One for the Boys
