Going for another vintage creation today.
I was inspired by the Our Creative Corner photo challenge.
I love the bottom left picture (reminds me of a jigsaw puzzle ~Ü~ ), so that's my inspiration. I went trawling for vintage images and the one I used came from The Graphics Fairy.
The general layout is based on a sketch from The (paper) Trail makers. I'm using Amarily's sketch for this.
I've stayed true to most aspects except the the image is relatively larger, so it's perched further up, and the sentiment ticket (instead of a title) sits further down.
I've always admired vintage image cards, and I'm so glad I've made one. I like the way the image sits on a corrugated card. I did not use gesso, but tempera paint. It has taken on some of the ink from the walnut stain DI, so it's muted but vintage-y.
The flower is light kraft paper, cut with Tim Holtz's tattered florals die. After cutting, I crumpled up the flowers, opened them up, then layered them together. I applied paper pen and spread it out with my fingers. I discovered recently that it shrinks when it's dry. The curls are all due to shrinkage. I used a button for the flower centre, tied with twine. The flower and leaves were also given a spritz of glimmer mists for some sparkly colour.
