Like an old wine- so are you lo
This lo made me a ginger gem on Gingersnap metal challenge- thanks!!
This new lo was a real challenge for me- vintage style lo for men? No flowers,laces, ribbons, blings? Is it possible? I am not sure-it's for you to decide, but it's the most vintage I could manage without all this vintage items I am so used to add.
The basic cardstock was a recycling- this was the back cover of some page kit and it's grey, not Kraft color with some texture and it's the only paper I used here.
I did some misting with dark purple and green mists and devided one single photo of my Dh into 3 parts as this lo was made for Thuersday sketches sketch and was 3 small photos one.
Then I added lots of leaves ' rub on all around the misted area and even did some as 3 d effect.
The grapes were made with distress stickles and it took ages for them to dry!!
The chipboard shape was the winning Rak I got from Dotty divas challenge blog for my December win ( I got 10 chipboard shapes from this Tandu company and lots of cardstock too- thanks!!).
It was painted with green acrylic paint and I added the demension with brown and white pens. As the final touch I added some Tim Holtz metal items- and as my DH is an engineer these are perfect. I also asked him to choose the word charm of the package and he decided for "EXCELENCE"
The clock was stamped on the clear transparency with black Stazon ink, the the spinner on is from Tims collection of metals (love it), so is the upper key hole charm - for no reason, I just love them.
And then I added some hand write journaling on the border:
U r like an old vine- better and better as the time pass...
And as for challenges:
This was done for Sketchy tuersdays dt sketch- not reall vintage but as much as I could with male theme
