It's challenge day over at 'The Alphabet Challenge blog' and we are on the letter 'V', so would love to see your Vintage projects this week. I love this style of crafting and I think it can be worked into so many different projects. Here's my DT inspiration for this week's challenge ...
It's one of my favourite 8x8" card blanks, covered in gorgeous paper from the Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby paper stack, which has been edged with Victorian Velvet distress ink. The shaped piece was cut using a Spellbinders Labels 17 die and then run through a script embossing folder for some texture. I ran the Victorian Velvet ink over the script just to define it a little. The stamped image is 'Kaisercraft - Botanical' and is also stamped in the same distress ink for a monochrome look. The main image is mounted onto a piece of gold mirri card to high light it. Embellishments include a TH paper rosette cut from the same paper, a piece of lush ivory lace and three ivory flat backed pearls. I also scattered some gold frantage embossing powder across the card for a little extra interest.
I shall look forward to your entries over at the challenge blog.
