Antique Quote


I decided which quote I would use for the challenge.
I thought about what the wow challenge ANTQUE meant to me. It conjured up images of art deco, old, brown and rusty colours.
Now to start crafting.
  • I chose a digi background and then a digiboss so that i could have the embossed background look but not the bulk.
  • Designed tags with the quote written on them
  • Printed onto smooth paper. Cut and stuck to my journal page. 1st mistake! When i heat embossed the paper sort of bubbled up a bit! Obviously i should have stuck it down before embossing because the heat affected the glue!! I never learn because done this before!! Lol
  • Stamped and embossed background.
  • I coloured in the bee. I have embossed him in gold but it didn’t turn out too good because my ink pad was a little dry!
  • Stamped flower onto Kraft card and coloured in with distress pens. Cut it out.
  • Distress inked the edges of the page and around the flower.
  • Stuck flower and tags to the bumpy page.

Hopefully you can't really notice the bumpy page.
