Hi there. Wanted to share a little vintage creation I made yesterday, which is a revisit of a similar card I made in 2009, which I still have in my little treasure box after all these years.
First of all I took a white piece of card stock and sponged it with Bundled Sage distress ink. Then I choose two stamps, a daisy stamp from Darkroom Doors and a leaf stamp from Florilèges and with versamark ink I randomly stamped to form a background pattern. Making sure the distress ink was dry, I embossed the background. I printed out a little vintage image and painted her headscarf with bundled sage and the little flowers with pink. I hand cut some leaves (SU) and the Hero Arts Cornflower and attached. The sentiment is Penny Black. I used stitching as I think it adds so much to a hand-made card.
This is the card I revisited, having made this in 2009. I have to say that the distress inks have not lost any of their original color, in fact this same Dusty Concord inkpad is still in use after four years too! If the vintage photo has faded a bit that only adds to its charm.
Have a lovely week. Glad to say that the hot weather has given way to lower temps and a lovely cool breeze - just so nice!
PS - I get asked questions by ladies who do not leave a way I can reply to them - if you want to ask me about anything, please leave an e-mail or blog address so that I can get back to you.
