It's another fun challenge at Red Carpet Studio and this time inspiration is drawn from old Hollywood movies. You have to make a vintage style card. The challenge runs from April 14th to the 20th. The sponsor is The Robin's Nest. The prize is a $10 gift certificate to their online store.
When I saw this challenge I was a little bit worried. I don't think I have ever made a vintage style card. I've always admired them but its just not my thing. One thing about being on a design team is you get pushed creatively. This is a good thing I think. In any case it was with great trepidation that I set out to make this card.
Well, it took me FOREVER to create but I think it turned out pretty well. My whole card was made round the chipboard cameo that I painted and made all old and distressed looking. I got that chipboard from Michaels. It's a Studio 18 product. Once that was done I went through my new paper stack I won from Paper Crafts Magazine's blog. It by DCWV called Tradewinds and its GORGEOUS! There is also some paper from a Colorbok paper pad too. I used a damask embossing folder by Sissix to emboss the bottom of the card and then sponged to make it antiqued. I cut part of a handmade doily to attach to the top part. I didn't want to use a whole one or it would be too bulky. I used some blue Prima flowers which I darkened by sponging with blue ink. Not sure where the flower with the text on it came from but the flower on top is from Creative Impressions which I sponged brown then added a rhinestone. The small blue flower is from Forever In Time. Don't know where the pearl brad is from. The sentiment is from Fiskars. Whew! And that's all she wrote! :-).
Anyway, I hope you all will join us in all the fun! Have a fabulous day!
Beautiful, stunning, gorgeous! Kim this rocks! I love the combination of patterns, that doily, the cameo...and the banners peeking out the bottom?! Genius!ReplyDelete
