More Cards for Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger Vintage Vagabond :-)

OK, I said in my last Trigger post, 'there might be more cards'.....and there is......actually..... slightly overkill ....... eeeek!
It's the earthy colours. I know from much experience in quilting, they leave a lot of people cold.
For me, they are heaven.
I was also really inspired by the different textures in the image, especially the stripes.
I have two more cards for the challenge in this post.

This challenge ended up being a series, where one idea led to another.
So I am posting the journey......7 cards in total, two already posted Here.

After 7 months of card making my 'style' is still evolving.(I did make cards 7 years ago but so much has changed since then.) The only thing I know for sure, my style is not CAS. I am happiest when mixing stamps, die shapes, designer papers and bellies.




 
 
 
 
I have used Papertrey Ink - Doily Details Die Collection (set of 3)  for both of these cards.
 

 
For this card I cut Strips in Black and Craft card stock to make the background. It's very bold but I like it.
The Butterfly is a Cuttlebug Die that I have had for a while.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
 
 
 
 
 
The other cards:-
 
 The truck had a Vagabondy look to me. A Vagabond brings images of someone travelling and time passing......I think the Tim Holtz stamp I have used that says 'Time is a companion'  fits perfectly.
I have used several stamps from this set in the following cards.

  
 
Butterflies seem to be journeying and searching....a winged Vagabond.

 
 The frame is Papertrey Ink - Mat Stack 5Die and stamp set. 

The Butterfly is from Kaisercraft -Timeless collection here.

 
The Butterfly is a Cuttlebug Die
 
 
Thanks for journeying with me.
Until next time...........................

So many cards for one challenge - I am impressed! I actually like them all, but my favorite is the second one with the horizontal stripes!

Oh what fabulous cards, each one captures the TT in a different way. Love the doilies, the butterfly and that antique truck! :)
