Vintage Style



 
Crafty Individuals have a challenge blog run by Jean Hardy and this months challenge centres on a colour theme of Pink, Cream and Brown so I thought I would have a go at a vintage style creation.


 



I started by cutting out a pre-printed pink and cream rose floral display as the main base.  This was edged in pink grapefruit Versamagic chalk ink and adhered onto a piece of brown linen textured card which was then matted further onto a piece of cream card cut at an angle.  All edges were inked with the same Versamagic ink.






The main central feature is made from a CI small collage frame which I painted first with french rose acrylic paint.  When dry this was liberally coated with cheap PVA glue and then overpainted with plenty of buttermilk acrylic paint.  I used a heat gun to immediately dry the paint to achieve the distress crackle effect.  This was enhanced with more of the pink grapefruit Versamagic.






I then cut a CI domino sized glossy printed image and attached it to the back of a Tattered Angels glimmer chip frame with Glossy Accents.  The frame was also coloured with the Versamagic and was then stuck in place within the collage frame.  Three flowers were punched from some brown and pink paper and attached at the bottom left of the frame and centred with pink half pearls.  A small piece of cream paper lace was added at the bottom of the frame.





Next I attached a piece of pink satin ribbon centrally over the base matts sticking with double sided tape.  I added a little plate with the words 'vintage style' stamped in Vintage Sepia Versafine ink on a piece of cream card. This was attached with foam pads as shown to the frame and the finished frame was adhered to the base with large Glue Dots.

Finishing touch was to add a Tattered Angels chipboard finial to the top with glossy accents.

  9. Lovely Sid, made me think "through the keyhole" or "what the butler saw" the way the image looks in the frame (although the butler would probably have been disappointed to find the lady looking so elegant and demure!)
