Vintage

Hi crafters. Back to the sixties again. This card uses some Judi Kins wood block stamp cubes: Organic shapes palette and Spot block cube. It’s a bit hard to get a good solid area when you can only stamp once. I stamped the large areas with wild honey, twisted citron cracked pistachio and broken china distress oxides as the oxides stamped more solidly with one press. I then went back with a dry brush and brushed ink on the images to get a more solid colour. The next layers stamped really well. The second layer was peeled paint and faded jeans. On the top there is Forrest moss, vintage photo and wilted violet. The sentiment on top is from Technique Tuesday Sassy birthday, stamped in Versafine Clair acorn. I sprayed the whole thing with fixative to try to prevent oxidising, then rounded the corners.

I am entering this card in these challenges:

Time out challenge #129 Retro I did the optional one layer.
