The digital tag is from The House Across the Bay Etsy store which I printed onto textured cardstock. The image of the couple is a watercolour from the internet (I had a good look and it seems to be free to use for non-commercial use), and I had to line up the tag image very carefully so I could overprint the couple image onto the tag (it went through the printer twice).
The card base is kraft CS with the edges chalked/distressed, and the DP is a page out of a dictionary (I also distressed the edges of the page using chalk)
Now for the sentiment, which I created myself. It is computer generated, in different fonts, printed on textured CS, and then the individual words were torn out. The edges were distressed too.
The embellishments are a scrap of lace that I had been meaning to throw away for a long time ( now I'm glad I didn't!) and I recoloured it with Copics and some chalk.
The heart in the bottom left hand corner started out its life as a pearl white, but after some Copics recolouring it is now this wonderfully rich deep red colour.
I need to practice my vintage style as it is so far out of my comfort zone, so please be kind when you leave me a comment suggesting how I can improve my techniques in this style.
I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
SWEET STOP SKETCHES, #206 (I flipped the sketch horizontally)
FLOURISHES, TIMELESS TUESDAY, #215, AROUND THE HOUSE The lace is my ‘around the house’ item)
