MAWTT has gone Vintage

Good Morning everyone,

I'm here with something a little different today.
The theme this fortnight over at Moving Along With The Times is:
Not my usual style, but hey it's a challenge!

I decided to make a wall hanging, something I've wanted to do for a while but never got round to.

The papers are from Raspberry Road called Timeless Victorian. I printed the sentiment onto the teal paper  and cut the 'Laugh' out on the silhouette in the same font. All layers have had distress ink applied and torn in places to give them an aged look. I then used some homemade texture paste through a stencil for a bit of interest. The flower was made using a scalloped circle die which I inked, wet and layered up with a brad to hold them together. Each layer was them scrunched up till I got the look I wanted. When dry the paper stiffens to give a nice firm finished piece.. Pleated vintage ribbon was also added between the layers for a bit of extra texture.

Why not go see what my teamies have created here

Have a great day!
