Challenge Entry: Sweet Friend Card

Gingersnap Creations is celebrating the joys of childhood this month.  For GC113: Chestnut Theme Challenge - Babes & Tots, I pulled out a fun vintage image that I'd saved eons ago (and of course did not note where I got it from...sorry!).  These three adorable little girls are actually the models on a French sewing pattern.

A Few Details:
  • I printed the image on plain white office cardstock, colored with markers, and aged it with the Tim Holtz paper distresser and some Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  • I added faux stitching with a brown Le Pen.  "Sweet Friend" is stamped on vellum with brown StazOn ink, cut out with deckle scissors, and aged with more Vintage Photo DI.

: SU! cardstock ‘Creamy Caramel’; SU! vellum; DCWV; scrap pattern paper
