It's time for the new Very Vintage Challenge at Stamping Vacation. The theme this month is an interesting one!
Use Pieces of a Map
You have until May 7 to link up your project. All entries will be eligible for the monthly draw of a $25 gift certificate to the store of YOUR choice. What could be nicer than that??!!
Here is what I can up with.
I used a real map. I torn off pieces until it was a shape I liked. I crinkled it and aged it with Vintage Photo ink (Ranger). Can anyone guess what this is a map of?
This stamp is one I picked up at the stamp convention. I am not sure of the manufacturer. It may be Stamp Camp. Does anyone recognize it? I started out with a piece of Barely Banana CS (Stampin' Up) and stamped with Vintage Sepia (VersaFine). I colored in some of the areas with chalks. It was distressed with Vintage Photo.
I layered the map and stamped image on 3 different papers. Went over everything with Vintage Photo. For more interest, I stamped a medallion stamp (Papertrey Ink) with Tea Dye ink (Ranger) randomly over the entire surface. The card base is Cream. I made some small holes in the spine and threaded a strip of fabric through and tied it in a knot.
Here is a peek at the inside. This will be a nice card for a friend or a family member. Not sure yet who will get this one.
A few fun challenges for Vintage Minstrel Card:
The Paper Players: Recycling: I recycled an old map that was just laying around.
A Spoonful of Sugar: tons of texture
Flutterby Wednesdays: butterfly, fairy, or angels and anything goes
Have a great day and get some stamping done. Love ya.
