Vintage flying

I've had some inky play time this weekend and decided to revisit a couple of old techniques from Tim H's Creative Chemistry 101. This tag uses Archival resist - 
So here's the first layer with basic technique - stamping with archival ink and then adding distress ink over the top. I used Adirondack stonewashed and latte ink with Andy Skinners flight of fancy stamp set, followed by tumbled glass, pumice stone and walnut stain distress ink. 
I then had a lovely time adding some more stamping using my newest stash - Stampers Anonymous mini travel blueprint stamps.
I also layered on old book page die cut with Sizzix mixed media die, cork die cut sentiment, stamped and fussy cut plane and of course the main sentiment to which I added splats of Dylusions ink spray and cinnamon stickles.  

 I'm sharing my tag over at -
