Here is my Design Team sample...
I love creating shabby chick/vintage designs! A while back a friend gave me some old Norman Rockwell art calendar pages, one of which I used as the main image for this card. I had been waiting for an opportunity to do something with those pictures & this was the perfect project! I tore around the edges of the picture, and to give it an aged & worn look, then sponged a bit of Walnut Stain distress ink to the torn edges. I wanted the stamped sentiment to stand out on the picture, so I used an eraser to "fade" some of the color in that area. Then I stamped the sentiment with Versamark & used black embossing powder so that it would "pop." Although you can just barely see the background papers peeking through, I dry embossed it, stamped it out, distressed & sponged on Antique Linen & Walnut Stain distress inks, then tucked some scrap pieces of designer paper, lace & doily beneath the main image. I was really happy with the end results of this card & because there was no colouring involved it was a quick & eash project - can't get any better than that, huh?!
