Quad Challenge!

Hay blogland, I'm still here.. just not had much free time, and the time i have had i've spent faffing doing the boring stuff like washing and sorting etc.. 
So todays tag is is a monster challenge piece combining 4 of the babies into one.. not wanting to miss out and all.. It includes  
Sunday Stamper ' Believe and/or Journey'
Compendium of Curiosities 'Multi-Medium Collage'
Theme Thursday 'Vintage and Tags'
Lots To do 'Shapes' {and last weeks too which was 'Stitching'}
I shaped my tag using one of my alterations 'on the edge' dies, Inked the base with victorian velvet and bundled sage, then i rubbed some vintage photo on my craft sheet and spritzed with a gold perfect pearl water mix , i used this to ink my dotty background stamp and stamp onto my tag. I also embossed some dots using my cuttlebug. I stamped some stitches either side of the embossing and embellished with a selection of paper roses and lace, I covered a maya road mini butterfly shape following timmys instructions from the book page 66, stamped the word believe, and edged the whole tag with gold to finish it off.
***
Oh a quick update for those wondering... 'Project craftroom' still isn't quite complete and i don't wanna reveal all till its all looking prim and proper, I finally have the last cupboard being delivered next wed so here's hoping i can join in with woyww {which i have missed for a couple of weeks now} and show you all my new and wonderful space.
Right thats all for now, Happy Creating.
