Today, I felt like a big change, so this morning, I attempted a card made by Michelle Zindorf – not very successfully – but it’s gone in the post, today, to someone for a special reason. It was fun to try.
Tonight, I did something I’ve been hankering after for a few weeks and made a vintage card – using different shades of Turquoise for the current Wednesday Stamper challenge.
I used Gesso over strips of old dictionary papers and music sheets, then Adirondack Dabbers (Aqua, Pool, Stream and Sandal) to create the background with some stamping and some stencilling. The pretty lady is an old stamp from Bella Rosa – stamped with Archival Sepia – and you’ll notice that I distressed a lot of the edges, finishing off with some vintage photo corners and a couple of buttons. The metal word actually says ‘Hope’, but you can’t see it clearly because of the light – it’s dark here, lol.
It’s a long time since I’ve done any vintage work and I really enjoyed this for a change. VERY messy, though and I think I’d better tidy my desk before the next WOYWW, lol, not to mention getting my stuff together for today’s Stamp Club.
This also fits today’s Lots to Do Challenge, which is ribbons (there’s ribbon in the button) and lace, but I may well do another one to fit the challenge cos this is a bit of a cheat.
