This week’s Our Craft Lounge challenge is to make a project with a vintage style. Whenever I see vintage style as part of a challenge, I panic! It’s just not a style I’m comfortable with, but I did give it my best shot for this card using the Years Gone By set and the current Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge.
The set’s “just my type” sentiment is stamped on a cream circle and also inked around the edges with distress ink. I attached it to the opposite side of the image panel and accented it with a small felt heart. For a final vintage-style touch, I threaded a pearl-topped stick pin through the heart.
Stop by the OCL blog for all the details on the challenge, including how you can win a $20 gift certificate for playing along.
