Morning all. Thanks for all the lovely entries on my Cardz4guyz challenge. It's always lovely to see how others interpret your theme. Today we have a new Guyz challenge and Heidi has definitely challenged me with this one - Vintage. Vintage is way outside my comfort zone - although vintage for a guy is easier than vintage for a girl in my opinion. It's a good job I've been tidying my craft room so I knew I'd got a little booklet of masculine images with some vintage stuff in. I knew I'd got it but I wasn't sure where I'd put it. This tidying lark isn't all it's cracked up to be. Anyway, when I did manage to spot it, I found some vintage looking musical instrument tags that appealed.
I didn't like them as tags so I cut them down a bit and distressed the edges. I inked and distressed a little bit of background paper and used the same ink (vintage photo distress ink) to colour a cream card blank. I swiped my ink pad over some craft cardstock which gave a lovely textured look to it and used it to cut some musical dies. I added the obligatory bling - 'cause I can't help myself - and that's it. Considering I'm not a fan of this style I'm really chuffed with this. I've got a couple more tags left so I'm doing another for my Church box of cards.
Over to you. I could do with some inspiration. Let's see your vintage projects please.
Thanks for reading.
