The vintage look is all the rage right now for cards and scrapbook pages, and the new Vintage Vogue set has some fantastic images to achieve this look! I was inspired by the colors of Shelli Gardner's vintage scrapbook page (see my previous post) when I made this workshop card. I wanted to use some of the techniques she used, so I tried layering images, clear embossing and ink sponging. What do you think?
I began by wheeling both the card background and focal image in Soft Suede with the Very Vintage wheel. The flowers from the Vintage Vogue set were stamped with VersaMark and clear embossed. Coordinating inks—Regal Rose, Pretty In Pink and Creamy Caramel—were sponged over the top, and the excess ink wiped off with a tissue. The clear embossing resists the sponged ink to reveal the flowers! I love how the background is still visible through the sponged inks—great layered stamping effect!
By adding the Scallop Trim Border punch edge and the Vintage Labels greetings, I completed my vintage look. Did I mention that these two items can be earned for FREE with any $50 purchase? Only a few days left for Sale-A-Bration!
