Creative Card Crew: Vintage
Good Tuesday morning; it's time for another fun challenge from the Creative Card Crew! Our theme for this fortnight is vintage and our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp!
I have to say that while I love vintage, it is very hard for me to pull off, so this was really a struggle.... I had several different ideas before I came across this DP from 7 Gypsies...I knew it would be perfect and went to work! There is no stamping involved with this card; mainly die cutting, scoring, and sponging. I used my Scor-Pal to score a few lines on my Kraft cardbase, then gently swiped an ink pad along the scoring before adding a bit of sponging. I like the aged look! I also added a bit of ink to the DP to "dirty it up" a bit. I added my felt die cuts, a button, a pearl, and a needle with floss to finish the card.
Paper: PTI Kraft and True Black, 7 Gypsies DP
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber
Embellies: PTI Button, K&Company Pearl
Extras: Scor-Pal, Spellbinders Nestabilities, PTI Dress Form Die, MFT Die-namics Rolled Flower Die, PTI Pure Poppy Felt, Black/Green Felt (my stash), DMC Floss
I would love to see your take on vintage...maybe you can give me a few ideas!
Thanks for stopping by!
