Vintage GirlStep1: Soak your crocheted flowers and twill tape in a bowl of coffee. Remove and let them dry. If you're in a hurry, use a heat gun to dry them (Don't get it too close to your embellishments).
Here's a tutorial I have put together to show you how to combine a few techniques to make a Vintage Picture/Scrapbook Page or Card.
Step 2: For the FAUX LINEN look, get a piece of White Glossy Cardstock and sandpaper it both ways - horizontally and vertically.
Step 3: Print out a photo or an image from your computer onto the cardstock.
Here's a close up of the image with the faux linen look. I downloaded this free image from the Graphics Fairy.
Step 4: Mask the image with a cut out and place the Wheel Guide over it ready to roll the 'Very Vintage' Wheel stamp over the top.
Step 5: Using a cartridge filled with a few drops of Sahara Sand Ink Refill, roll the wheel stamp across the masked picture.
Step 6: Repeat as many times as necessary to cover the area you require and remove the masking from the picture.
Step 7: Using a blender pen and some ink from a refill or from your stamp pad, colour in some of the images on the background stamp.
When I did this step I was thinking about making a large focal picture for a scrapbook page. However, half way through the process I decided I would put it in a frame instead, so unfortunately all my coloured images turned out to be 'hidden', making this step unnecessary! Oh well!
Step 8: Stamp images from 'Vintage Vogue' using Always Artichoke Ink.
Step 9: Rub the surface with an embossing buddy.
Step 10: Stamp the Baroque Background Stamp over your image using Versa Mark.
Step 11: Cover the stamped area with Clear Embossing Powder and shake off excess powder.
Step 12: Emboss with the Heat Tool until clear image emerges.
Step 13: Sponge over the image using a wedge of Stamping Sponge and Sahara Sand Ink to complete the EMERGING COLOUR technique.
Step 14: Buff off the ink from the embossed area with a tissue.
Step 15: Cover a chipboard frame (non-SU) with Bella Rose DSP using Tombow Glue.
Step 16: Place your image behind the frame and secure the backing chipboard and stand with Sticky Strip.
Step 17: Embellish your image with some cute accessories. For more details on this part of the process, please look at the accompanying post, here.
It was a bit of a long process but worth it in the end because I was happy with the result. It looks much prettier in real life! Let me know if you try something similar. I'd love to see what you come up with.
