Okay, so how did I make this?? Well, I started with a Mustard piece of CS. I stamped various vintage images and tore them out. (If you follow my blog you may remember my trip to Florida this spring. The one where Chris and stayed with her mom. There images are some more of the ones I stamped while staying there. So, thanks again Elaine.) I arranged the images so that they overlapped. They were glued down with Decoupage medium and left to dry. When dry go over with one coat of Decoupage Medium. To unify the images, distress with Vintage Photo ink. Then stamp over the whole thing with Scratches cover-a-card using Cajun Craze pigment ink. Heat set. Trim to desired size and add all the lovely accents you can find!
Hint: Do not be tempted to add the accents with glue dots. You will be very disappointed every time you walk in the room and see another one on the floor. Wisdom speaks from experience. Use a good craft glue like Tacky or Fabri Tac.
