This vintage card made with this super sweet Peggy Loves Vintage image just gives me a reason to smile.....cuz I'm really a vintage girl at heart. The amazingly talented Sharon Caudle had given me a card a long time ago using this image so I just had to get it for myself at Peggy's lovely store. It comes with other delish images too. I loved Sharon's card so much that I have it sitting in a special place overlooking my desk. (Thanks a bunch, Girlie)
Craft Us Crazy is having our 12th challenge. Can ya believe it? Boy this year is flying by. Anywho........this time we want to see your "Christmas in July and/or Distressed/Vintage". Our sponsors are Peggy Loves Vintage and Crop Chocolate. Head on over to the Craft Us Crazy challenge blog to play along for some great prizes.
Now back to my card...........This was my very first time using the Tim Holtz Distress crackle paint 'picket fence' & I was scared to death of ruining my card. LOL But I decided to just go for it & I love the results. I'll definitely play with it again. First I used Tim's FABulous little distressing tool (love that thing) & then I painted the crackle paint on. I was afraid to use the brush that comes with it (it's attached to the cap) cuz it was soooooo BIG.....so I used a small brush of my own. Clean up was easy with soap & water. Love that cuz I just hate to get my hands dirty. I could never ever garden cuz of that. Am I a sissy lala or what. I would be like that little girl in the picture......watching every one else work while I sat on the fence. LOL
Did you notice something new on my photo?????????? I finally made myself a WATERMARK!!! WooHoo!!! I'm a big big girl now. LOL Seriously though........a friend from Color Me Creative gave us all a link to a PSE6 tutorial on how to create your own. So I followed it to the letter & voila.............easy peasy.........(once ya know how, that is.....lol). Thanks a bunch, Jo!
