Vintage Lady card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Vintage/Past Times".

I wanted to use the technique I used last time once again, but instead of cutting it twice with the Mixed Media set, I wanted to emboss it. And luckily I had the Latticework stencil that matches the die. When the Texture Paste was dry, I random stamped with the Read to Me stamp. Then I applied a layer of Clear Gesso on the whole card.


After the Clear Gesso was dry, I started using Nuvo Shimmer Powder to apply color. I used three colors for this, Catherine Wheel, Cherry Bomb and Solar Flare. And for the vintage feel I also used Infusions, Sunset Beach and Black Knight. The Black Knight is very intense and since the other colors are a lot ligher, I had to apply some extra layers of Shimmer Powder and Sunset Beach Infusions to make a better transition. I darkened the edges with Distress Paint and Crayon, first with the paint, and finally with the Crayon.

Gorgeus card Sandra :-) the background is fabulous and I loved watching the video of how you did this :-)

I saw that you had popped little holes in the infusions, what a great idea! I always struggle with sprinkling too much and it comng out in big lumps!! This is a great tip! :-)

Hope you have a great week

Totally cool colors! But look at those black corners! I am in love I guess!
I see you are in love with the shimmer powders, too :) The way you matched the die and stencil making a completely different texture is beyond fantastic. Hugs, Marzena
