Last Saturday I went to my friend Kathy's B-Day Crop. At her crop, she had a make and take challenge for us to do!
We each received a chipboard letter of our first name and we had to decorate it using distressing, ribbon or lace, embossing, flowers and a button. I did my letter "V" vintage and used some of the baby prima roses that I made on them.Oh I MADE those mini roses from a tutorial that Kathy from Paper Phenomenon did on making knockoff baby Prima roses...IT LOVE making them! I have a bunch in a jar...well so much a bunch cause I RAKed a lot of them away...but LOVE making them and they were perfect for my V..I just distressed them some more to make them more vintage. I followed all the rules except using a button. There was no button appropriate for the vintage theme I wanted to create.
I inked white strands of pearls to make them vintage and added them to my V. The tag reads forever...like V Forever or Forever V... I aged it by crumpling it in a small ball then opening it up and inking with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink...then I misted it with water from my mini mister...let it dry and then misted it again with gold Glimmer Mist. I painted the edges of the "V" with gold metallic acrylic paint by Folk Art (I believe). The paper is from K & Company (I can't remember what paper pad).
I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it turned out! It now is displayed proudly in my scrap space.
Thanks for looking!
