I had a bit of fun with Washi tape for this 2nd entry in to the Case Study Challenge...
This is Teri's card
And this is my card
|It's so exciting to use up something that's been hiding in my stash for years!|
The sentiment is another Kikki -K stamp - I think they have cute stamps, even though they are a stationary company.
I've used stamps from Amy Tangerine, and 2 different Kaisercraft sets.
|This is the sketch from Case this Sketch challenge - I did a mirror image - hope that's allowed!|
|This is using the popular Amy Tangerine paper and stamp.|
|I did a Google search for a vintage image and sure enough I found one at the Graphic Fairy.|
I then changed the colour in Iphoto to 'antique' and then printed it on vellum.
Then I layered it on some script paper from Prima Almanac.
Then I layered it on a contrasting pattern and made a zig zag stiched border
(I'm not a sewer, so this was tricky!).
Then I inked up a card with walnut stain to fit the vintage look and added the sentiment.
What do you think? Did I achieve a vintage look?
|I stamped the background stamp on canson canvas card and coloured the background with jacquard dye .|
The flower stamps are Kaircraft and coloured with Twinkling H2Os.
The sentiment stamp is from Kikki K.
|I've chosen to go with the sketch and circles. I hope you like it.|
The purple butterfly is felt. This is the card I was going to enter in the City Crafter challenge, but I missed the deadline.
The design paper is Japanese paper and the plain paper is metallic, both from my local craft shop.
The crystal on the butterfly is vintage, from my Mum's stash and the black flourish is from Kaisercraft.
The flower circle has been layered with foam tape and a gem.
The image stamp is from Hero Arts and the banner and sentiment are from Taylored Sentiments.
The background has been stamped with a stamp from Hero Arts (it's hard to tell in the photo) and once dry, I swiped the card with versamark and then embossed with sparkling embossing powder.
|I have used Kaisercraft stamps and rhinestones for the lens and 1/2 an American Craft stamp for the|
'snap'. I have made special, personalised cards for Emma since she was about 6 and she has
kept them all. They reflect the crazes she has followed throughout her years.
ie. Tamagotchi, Build-a-bear, horse riding.
I hope she likes this one.
|You probably can't tell from this photo, but the card is soft grey (not white).|
I stamped the Kaisercraft stamp on the grey card, then fussy cut it and mounted on foam.
The border of film reel is washi tape - I've been waiting for the chance to use it.
The sentiment is computer generated.
|I had some travel stickers which gave me the inspiration for this challenge, but I've always wanted pink luggage,|
so I decided to pull the stickers apart and remake them with plain card and pink ink. The one on the right was clear embossed and then I used an embossing folder. The background paper is created using stamps. The blue paper and travel sentiment is from Kaisercraft. I have used walnut stain to distress all the edges.
|The background stamp is from Penny Black and the sentiment stamp is from MME.|
|This is one of those occasions when the end result is totally different from the original idea.|
I was plaing to use some woodgrain effect and different colours, but this stamp worked out best with one colour .
I tried using paint for a matt effect, but it was defined enough so I used colour box ink and just heat set it without embossing. The inside of the card reads 70th Birrthday to keep it subtle!
