EveryTime a New Story is Told...



Greetings! It's Wednesday and time for a new challenge over at Inkspirational!  This week, we are creating projects based on the photo below.

For my own card, I decided to use the Cargo Stencil by Tim Holtz. I stenciled it onto card using Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, Mustard Seed and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks.  The edges were then distressed with Vintage Photo DI.  The focal image is by Gecko Galz and was distressed lightly with VP DI as well.  The piece was matted to orange and black paper, wrapped with a bit of grungy cloth ribbon and mounted to a card base.  

I hope you will check out Inkspirational to see the fabulous inkspiration pieces of the Design Team, and then create and submit one of your own.  One lucky crafter who submits throughout the month will win a gift card for $30 from our August Sponsor Eclectic Anthology.

I love how you present your vintage piece, Yvonne! You have chosen just the right colors from the DI collection to use on Tim's fab stencil! Gecko Arts is always also in good taste! Your have so beautifully choreographed these elements!

I love your stenciled background! I've just recently got some stencils, but I haven't tried them out yet... The vintage image is adorable, and the card is so sweet! I'm away from home, without a dufflebag of supplies, and I hope I'll find time to enter when I get home. I know exactly what paper and image I'd use!
