Happy New Year Card with Ava Gavloski

Hello, Ava here wishing everyone a Happy New Year!  All the best in 2017!

I have a very Aged Vintage Card to share with you from a past time era.  
The old wooden / steel blade type of sleigh.

As you can see the sleigh is weathered, crackled and reflects the aged tones
from many winters of use on those hills of fun.

To get the aged look, paint the sleigh with a vintage antique white acrylic paint from DecoArt Paint.  Two coats should do it.  
Apply a coat of Crackle medium and let the sleigh dry over night.

When you look at this sleigh it appear as if the days gone by have made the paint on the sleigh start too flaking off in the warm winter sunshine.

The yellow tones of the burlap and the faded stamped sentiment truly takes the card back to an old era.  


You can find these cute little small wooden sleighs in the shop
under the Christmas and Holiday Section.
