Hello everyone. I hope your December is starting off wonderfully. I love this month for the magic it brings. Now if it was just a bit warmer it would be perfect.
It's time for the Friends of Unity blog hop again. This month the theme is Vintage.
I made a couple of cards for this one. I am not sure about the second one but I do love this first one.
I used this beautiful image from Unity Stamp Co's monthly membership kit. This one is from December called Smile Wider Laugh Longer To help give the colors a more vintage feel, I colored over the whole image with W1 and W0 first before coloring with some muted Copics. The edges are inked with Distress Oxide Antique Linen. I love the soft look of this one and the picture really doesn't do it justice.
Most of the time when I think of vintage looking cards, I think of masculine cards. My next card is perfect for the guys in your life.
This one uses You are a Classic. I stamped it on some book page paper I got from Amazon. I used Distress Oxide in ground espresso on Kraft paper. I used the same stamp to add some texture to the kraft background and the book page. I used Distress Oxide in walnut stain to add even more distressing to the pieces. The hearts and arrow where white chipboard pieces that I inked with ground espresso. I used a tiny stapler to add staples all over.
Be sure to hop along with everyone else and see their wonderful vintage creations.
Alaine-you are here
