vintage heart


For today's challenges, I'm aiming for a vintage creation using sentiment as a main focus, as opposed to printed vintage photos.

The original layout started off with a Card Patterns sketch. However, it has evolved quite a bit in the process. I wonder whether the original sketch is still recognisable?




 I've used brown lace for one of the panels. However, it looked so heavy that I layered sheer ribbon over it, and finished with a bow & a vintage button.


The sentiment is computer-generated. I used a sizzix heart die for the sentiment, and removed the sub frame. The outer scalloped border is embossed with a CB folder. I stamped a medallion on the heart, then edged it with a flourish stamp. All the stamps are Viva Decor.


It's paying along with a slew of challenges :

Thanks for looking!
