So, as it's thursday that means there's a new challenge starting today over on the Cute Card Thursday Blog. This week our theme is 'Something Old' and our prize is sponsored by Cedar Chest Designs.
When I read this week's theme it made me think 'Vintage' for my DT design. I've used a sweet stamp by La Blanche which I was lucky enough to win in a challenge a while ago. With Distress Inks I 'aged' the image layer, then flicked water droplets all over and blotted with a tissue, a technique which adds to the distressed look. I then used DI's and a water brush to colour in parts of the image to create the look of a hand coloured old sepia photograph. Finally, to set the DI's and 'age' the image more I spritzed 'Goosebumps' all over.
I used a Spellbinders frame die and Stampin'Up! Early Espresso cardstock to create a picture frame effect around the image. The background paper is a scrap I had in my stash and I used a length of the sumptious wide striped ribbon from SU! to tie around the side of the card. The sentiment is from SU! stamped using Cherry Cobbler ink and cut out with a heart shaped die. I used a Waco Pearlmaker Pen to add the tiny pearl border round the heart.
Do check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the DT over on the CCT blog for great inspiration and to get the full details of this week's challenge.
