Vintage Toys

Greetings! I am late posting my design team sample for the new challenge over at Inkspirational.  An unexpected 8-day stay in the hospital for my husband has really upset the apple cart!
As you can see from the photo above,  we are working from the photo to be inspired to create our projects.  I hope that you will pop over to see all the fabulous creations from our design team, and guest designer, and then consider joining in the fun with a project of your own.
For my own card, I had to dig back very deep into my early stamp acquisitions to a set called "Vintage Toys" by Invoke Arts Stamps. The last time I created with this set, it came out quite different. I decided to make polka dots by dipping the bottom of a tool into crackle paint.  I guess because it was such small quantities the crackle really doesn't show. The images were stamped on scrap water color paper, trimmed and water colored with Tombow markers. Some washi tape was used to ground the toys. A bit of stenciling with Distress Ink, and a touch of Ranger Enamel.
Thanks so much for dropping by.
Best, Yvonne
