I've made a vintage card for the challenge over at Sugar Creek Hollow where they are asking us to make something for our card using toilet tissue, paper towels, or coffee filters. My flower was made with a coffee filter.
I have used the sketch from Just Us Girls 118. I did add a sentiment at the bottom which was not shown on the sketch -- hope that's okay. Here's the sketch in case you'd like to use it too.
7 Kids Challenge - Try Something New is asking us to use a new technique, a new style or a new product. I am trying to get more comfortable with the vintage style and although I've made a card and a tag lately in the vintage style, I'd still say that it's new for me. And I've never made a flower with a coffee filter before either!
The lovely image that I've used on my card comes from Digital Two for Tuesday; Cora has wonderful vintage images there and at Clearly Vintage.
I've used a beautiful ribbon that was a gift from my friend Melisa Waldorf. By the way, Melisa is in the process of making a video tutorial so keep an eye on her blog for that! Back to the ribbon, I sponged it with Antique Linen, a Distress Ink from Tim Holtz so it would coordinate with my color scheme. The edges of my card base were also sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Antique Photo (thought that was appropriate with the image I was using!).
Sentiment stamp is from Gina K. Designs' set Fanciful Tags. Cut it out with Spellbinders Fancy Tags die. You can't see that very well on the photo but I did want it to blend in with thebackground so I guess you'd say I accomplished what I set out to do!
Well, that's all for now. Come on back now, 'ya hear?
