Say it with Words


This is a little folding card that, I made and posted last weekend, I hope has reached its destination.
I did take a few photos , the first is the card opened out.
 Lots of stencils, stamping, Vintage Photo, Tea dye and Antique Linen  distress inks, were used to give this an aged, grungy, inky look.


Another view , most of the stamps used are Tim Holtz, Stampers Anonymous , stamped up with Coffee  Archival ink and Timber brown Stazon



 A close up of the quote,  a Chapel Road art stamp. What could be better than this, my  answer I guess would be to spend it in the craft room enjoying yourself..



This is how it looks folded up and tied  closed , with a ribbon which was fixed in place under the die cut strip. [there was another die cut on the back page].


I shall be entering these challenges--
A Vintage Journey-  Challenge 2--Say it with Words.
Thats Crafty Challenges --Inky Antics

Thank you for taking time to stop by. I always appreciate your comments.
