Vintage Blues...

Hi there,

This week Heidi's got a fun challenge for us over at the Friday Mashup...

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using "Lined paper (Notebook, Graph, Spreadsheet etc.)".
  2. Create a project that has a "Distressed appearance".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project with "Lined paper that's Distressed looking".
When I saw the 'lined paper' element I thought of the lined paper in the Print Poetry dsp stack so that's what I started with...

I cut out the framed notepaper with my paper snips (love me some fussy cutting!) and stamped the sentiment from Perfectly Penned over the top, then sponged through an oval die-cut window with Crumb Cake ink to distress it a little. The Marina Mist background was randomly stamped with the En Francais background and sponged for more distressing, then layered on Midnight Muse. The flowers (from Stippled Blossoms) were stamped with Marina Mist and Midnight Muse and the leaves with Wild Wasabi and Gumball Green, all cut out and layered with dimensionals. I added a little resin flower from the Artisan Embellishments kit for something a bit different. I couldn't resist adding some lace trim and a Crumb Cake seam binding bow with a button from Artisan Embellishments and some linen thread in the centre.

Check out what the rest of the DT created for this fun challenge over at the Friday Mashup...

Thanks for stopping by!
