vintage friends


The sketch: Sketch and Stash. I think I've just made it in time!

'Spots & Dots': One Stop Craft Challenge.

'Frost your Creations': Gingersnap Creations. I have used crackle paint and glitter embossing powder.

Here is my creation (you'll see it clearer if you click on the photo):

Papers: Graphic 45 ~ Fashionista Collection.

I've embossed the edges with glitter embossing powder. I combined two different coloured powders to achieve the colour I wanted.

I rummaged through my old button pot and found a lovely vintagey looking button to add to the image and I sewed it on.

The measuring tape is 7gypsies ~ gaffer tape. I've had this forever and just happened across it. The colours go just perfectly.

I cut out the clock, embossed the edges with the same glitter combination powder and crackle glazed the face. When it was ready I added a Tim Holtz game spinner.

Thank you for looking.
