Vintage Technique

Today's Technique Challenge on Splitcoast was 'Vintage' ... which to me means soft, muted colours, sponging and 'antiquing'. So I pulled out the Vintage Vogue stamp set, my Soft Suede Ink and a sponge and came up with this:


And here's a close up of the 'fleurette' crocheted flower. This flower is bright white cotton, so I turned it into a vintage flower by sponging it with Soft Suede ink and added a corduroy button with linen thread.

Recipe
Stamps : Vintage Vogue, Wings of Friendship (sentiment)
Cardstock : Very Vanilla
Ink : Soft Suede
Accessories : Sponge, Fleurette, Corduroy Button, Linen Thread
