Hi Everybody, Yesterday I was watching Better Homes and Gardens and the decor clip was distressing and rejuvinating an old boring wooden dining table and mix of chairs. The table top was finished with pasting old music papers on table top and varnishing it. Looked pretty good. I wanted to translate that idea in a card. Light bulb moment lol! And I did it today.
Here is my card.
The center panel is made by using old dictionary scrap paper. I cut the scrap paper into small pieces, inked the edges and glued them randomly on a 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches cardstock. I also stamped images on the panel and coloured them using markers. I then inked the edges of the cardstock. I am so happy with how I was able to use a scrap dictionary paper and a few stamps to create a focal vintage panel. I then added the twine and sentiment strip and finished off with a beautiful red rose flower. This panel is mounted on the red card base using foam adhesives.
