A little more VINTAGE

I decided on another vintage creation this morning using the VINTAGE set by TJ Designs from The Stamp Attic.
Glassine seemed the perfect backdrop for these images, scrunched to give that aged feel, with a little machine stitching to the edges to give a little more interest.
A little film strip ribbon gives a little more interest to my card adding YESTERDAY to the top stamped onto white card and coloured with vintage photo ink. An accoutrement adds a little more dimension.
I cut my heart from thick card and painted with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints London Night and Honey Dew, adding the Glaze for that crackle, so simple and crackles perfectly, sponging the edges with a little vintage photo Distress Ink to add to the aged feel. Moments To Remember has been stamped onto white card and coloured with vintage photo ink. I stamped the two rulers onto white card, scrunched a little and coloured with vintage photo ink.  My mini spools from Maya Road have been hand sewn into place.

Back to the craft room now for a little more creative time, deadlines to meet!! Tracy x x
