This time I have chosen to make a card with a vintage feel to it. Mixed Up offer some free downloads to members, and the main image I have used is one of them. It is by Crafty Individuals and I think it's absolutely stunning.
My background is created using layers of vintage paper and vintage tape onto Kraft card stock, which I stained with layers of Distress Oxide. and then I have added a gorgeous paper napkin over the top with matt medium. I had some old rub ons in my stash that I added , and I inked the edges in Distress Ink before adding my embellishments and image, which I mounted on a die cut and distressed doily. The postcard and tags are from Hunkydory.
I hope I have inspired you to investigate Mixed Up Mag and also to join our challenge. Anything mixed media goes so it's easy to get involved.
Bye for now
