My Vintage Attempt
Ok...so I really really wanted to play along with the Let's Ink It Up challenge this time, BUT you have to make a bookmark or tag with a VINTAGE twist. Ok...first let me say...if you have ever seen anything on my blog, you know vintage is not my thing...lol. I really like bright clean crisp looks, so this was a tough one for me. I decided to give it a shot and play along with the Let's Ink It Up Challenge #2. So...whenever anyone says vintage the first thing that comes to my mind is Tim Holtz. Well, not him but his products....lol. Well, last year I won a Tim Holtz stamp set, and have used it maybe once, and that was only for the heart in the set. So I decided to pull it out for this one. I decided to make a tag, but it could be used as a bookmark too. I started by using 2 different colors of chalk inks from SEI to ink distress the tag. Next, I stamped the heart in a deep red ink color. Then I stamped the sentiment in Versamark, and heat embossed it with copper embossing powder. Last, I added 5 different ribbon scraps to the tag hole. I tied each of them into knots, and trimmed the ends of the ribbon so they weren't too long. Well, hopefully it looks vintage...lol. I tried...lol. Thanks for stopping by!
