Sharing my “Vintage Journey”

Published by at 8:28 pm under Ranger,Sizzix,tim holtz

I was very honored to be asked to be a “Creative Guide” on “A Vintage Journey“.  The theme is “The Colours of Autumn” and I had fun creating the card below and sharing how I created it.

I had so much fun playing and creating with some of my favorite products.  The distress stains are sooooo much fun to play with.  Below is “wet” and “dry” version of the background of the card.  I love the “spray” look.


And of course no card would be complete without perfect pearls…. haha.  I used the perfect copper to brush in between the cracks of the crackle paint.BeFunky_2014-09-27 07_50

Be sure to check out more details of my project on “A Vintage Journey” and I hope that you play long with the challenge of “The Colours of Autumn

Thanks for stopping by!

    It’s very beautiful. I love it. And if it is possible, I would like to know who won the mini distress inks? Thanks for sharing,

    I have an obsession with birds and trees. I love making leaves from Tim Holtz die cuts. I have made cards that are almost identical to yours! But, I haven’t used the copper to brush into the cracks on the leaves. That’s a great idea! Thanks for sharing with us!
