365 Cards, Aged Look
♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥
Yuppers, my most favorite kind of challenge, take something new, make it look old ! At 365 Cards Pam says it is all about the process, not that the things just look old. Or ARE old.
So I used a lot of stamps, and rub-ons to create this, including a stamp for the spatter (what a great idea, no mess like those spatter brushes !!) and a stamp on the kraft cardstock. And lots of distress ink.
Which brings me to the one problem.... I did use something very old on here. I have some REAL vintage seam binding, not the new-made-to-look-vintage seam binding I see all over the etsy shops. And here is the problem. It is too danged good ! Keeps its shape, won't bleach out the color, even cuts neatly and refuses to scrunch up, and does not shrink !! Who knew. Well, I do have some that had very very old rusted pins in it, so at least the rust will be honest when you all see it.
Spencer was telling us about a new friend he made at the pool. He put his index finger to his jaw and said "but I can not remember his name." pause pause pause "It's a monkey name."
