Blue & White Vintage Inventor

Hi Bloggers,

Today I'm sharing this card with you -


For the background on this one I've mixed some Faded Jeans Distress Ink Re-Inker (you can also use Distress Stain - the pads won't give you such an intense colour but if you only want a hint of colour you can use them) with some Eco Green Crafts Artist Spackle. I cut a square piece of white card and popped the That Special Touch Metal Effect Maskover it and dragged the Spackle mixture over the top using a tool which I think is called a squeegee.

Once I had scraped away the excess from the mask, I removed the mask from my card and popped  it together with my craft sheet and tool into some warm soapy water. This is important as the spackle is permanent when dry. It washes off easily using warm soapy water.

I put my background aside to dry.

I stamped the blank ledger image from the Creative Expressions Vintage Treasures stamp set using Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and embossed it using Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder.

I inked up some white card with Faded Jeans Distress Ink and stamped Mr. Inventor (Vintage Inventor) and the square image (Vintage Treasures) using Jet Black Archival Ink.

I stamped the 'Inventor' text (Vintage Inventor) using Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and embossed with clear powder. I dabbed some Faded Jeans Distress Ink over the top.

I assembled the card as shown, securing the Inventor text with staples and adding a Creative Expressions Faux Screw Brad in Antique Silver in each corner. I also did some faux stitching using a Sakura Fine Liner Blue Pen.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges -

I hope you like the card.
