Vintage To End The Year

Evening Girlz!!

Here is my try at something vintage this week.  It is okay, but not great...definitely a learning curve! 

The image is a crop from a free vintage photo on the net.  I used Distress Vintage Photo on it along with my fave ink.. Distress Wild Honey.  Once I distressed the photo I ran a Versamark pad over it and then dumped on the clear embossing powder to shine it up!

The tag itself was done by using Vintage Photo Distress ink randomly over the tag.  I then added Distress Wild Honey and once that was done I crumpled the tag up in my hand,   then spread it back out on my play surface.  Then, I inked up the applicator with Distress Gathered Twigs.  I find that this ink is on the blacker end of the brown spectrum and almost gives a burnt look to the edges.  This ink was also added to the wrinkles on the tag to deepen the colour.

The lace on the the tag came looking vintage enough so I only put Distress Vintage Photo on the edges of the ribbon.

I stamped the new Hero Arts background stamp called Tiny Ink Spots in VersaMark and then Copper Tinsel embossing powder.  It looks really neat in real life but the colours in the photograph just arent the right shades.  They should be a bit more on the warm yellow side. 

The recipe is...

Dylusions stamps by Ranger - Sentiment
Hero Arts 2013 - Background Tiny Ink Spots
Inks - VersaMark, Versa-Fine
Distress Inks - Wild Honey, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs
Ranger Clear Embossing Powder
Ribbon - Unknown

There you go!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful New Year!!
