Hello everyone! Hope you are having an awesome Thursday!
Today's Ways to Use it Challenge on SCS was to do Vintage. I don't do vintage too much but I had fun doing this! I used three different sets from Our Daily Bread designs. The wonderful promise is from the Aug. released set "Jesus". What a comfort there is in these words of our Lord! The bird and flowers are from "Sing to the Lord", and the hymn is "Amazing Grace Hymn".
I started with a base of Weathered Thyme by Lasting Imressions. I layered with GPW which I heavily sponged with Tim Holtz Tea Dye and then the designer paper is "The First Blush" by Studio D. I cut a small strip of floral dp and used my EK Success edge punch, layered that under the hymn which I distressed in a variety of ways. I stamped it on GPW with Sahara Sand, then I crumpled it all up and started sponging, tearing and rolling corners. The TH Distress Inks (also found at the ODBD Store) I used are Tea Dye, Antique Linen and Black Soot.
My laser cut design is actually cut out of a wedding favor box and sponged. The sentiment is stamped in Archival Jet Black because I wanted it to really stand out against all the sponging I planned to do. I used the same colors of TH ink but also added Tattered Rose lines to simulate folds. The bird and flowers were heat embossed with Antique God EP. I wasn't real happy about how this particular ep embossed, but it does have an "old" effect so I went with it. I cut the bird off the branch to mount him on the sentiment and then added the flowers in where I wanted them. I tried something new on the bird and flowers.... after embossing I colored them by sponging them with TH Distress Inks as well... quick and easy... again, not sure of the result but I enjoyed how quickly it went! The bird and sentiment are popped up on dimensionals. The corner piece on the top right is a Sizzix die cut, cut from a scrap of copper cs and run through the Big Shot with the CB Textile embossing folder for texture.
Thanks for taking a peek today!
