The first Friday of the month means a new challenge over at A Vintage Journey and the theme for June is Celebrations.
My Runway girls were stamped with Sepia archival before watercolouring a little colour, fussy cutting and edging with vintage photo.
Do you ever get asked how to emboss? I always find it a difficult question to answer as we are spoilt with so many techniques. I have used three on this card....
For my base layer I used embossing paste through Tim's flourish stencil and once dry added vintage photo DI.
The middle panel was dry embossed on card treated with gesso and then various brown tones of distress paint. Once dry I took it though the big shot in the embossing folder and then sanded back to reveal the raised surface.
My clock was inked and then vintage photo embossing powder added.
I finished with my sentiment - from the ever versatile simple sayings collections. On a scrap of previously spritzed card I stamped my saying and added a little more vintage photo DI.
Hope you have a reason to celebrate this month!
