Thanks so much for joining me today here on the Southern Ridge blog!
I have been playing with 'new to me' products and enjoying the creative process. I had a plan to create a vintage card using the Love Chipboard Embellishment and book pages of an old copy of Romeo and Juliet.
To create my background of my card, I used white cardstock, the Heart Stencil from Southern Ridge and Ranger Texture paste. I applied a thin layer of texture paste with a plastic palette knife, removed the stencil and set the piece of cardstock aside to air dry.
I tore one page out of my old book. I then tore that page into pieces - as you can see in the picture above.
Using a paint brush and Rangers Distress Collage Medium, I adhered and overlapped the torn page pieces to the top of the Love Chipboard.
I used Ranger Distress Spray in Vintage Photo to colour the background panel. I used paper towel to remover some of the spray from the texture paste raised hearts. I also used a glitter pen to add highlights to the raised hearts.
To create the card base, I layered a book page to a dark brown piece of cardstock. I added stitching with my sewing machine. I took the dried background panel, distressed the edges and adhered it to the top.
I added flowers, buttons, twine & lace to embellish and finish off my card!
