This card is really showing how old my stash is. This card is retro in the fact that I am using embellishments that people don't use much any more. First, the chipboard. I got this 3-4 years ago. It was plain. I covered it with patterned paper and inked the edges. The eye is a brad, which is second. I don't see many brads on projects lately. I have so many! At least I think I do.
See how the edges fray? I got that effect by putting my straight edge on top of the paper and ripping (cutting) the edge to the size I want. In the past, I've also wet the shape or size of the paper that I wanted the frayed edges. I'm not sure if I'm explaining it right. I can make a post just on this paper (and mulberry paper) if anyone is interested.
As you can see, I am changing my photos. I've learned to add the watermark. I am still experimenting with lighting. As of right now, I am using my phone to take photos.
This will be my first time to participate with Sunday Stamps. The design team did a beautiful job with wonderful examples. Retro Sketches amazes me with their very creative sketches.
Before I forget, I wanted to say something about the three little embellishments on the bottom right coroner. I really like the look of gems and I go through them like water. With my commitment to to buy anymore embellishments, I made my own. I inked up the saffron color CS and using my Crop a dile, I punched three circles, glued them in place and added Glossy Accents on top. By adding yellow to this corner, I helped balanced the card.
Thanks for stopping by!
