Step Back in Time with Craft for the Craic

Good Morning and Happy Friday!  

This month at Craft for the Craic we are taking a step back in time and we'd love to see how you interpret this.

I decided to make a vintage mixed media project because I've been dying to try out my layering stencils from Tim Holtz.  I took some Neenah cream cardstock and stamped it with a Hero Arts script stamp, 3rd generation stamped with Espresso distress ink, then I sponged the edges with Tea Dye distress ink and used the same ink with the brick layering stencil.  I mixed some Wendy Vecchi embossing paste with Tea Dye ink and applied through the Wildflower layering stencil.

I die cut some Spellbinders wildflowers and coloured them with watercolour and some Perfect Pearls splashes.  I also die cut Tattered Florals from docrafts sticky backed canvas and cork.  

I bought the word stickers in TK Maxx, not sure what brand they are.  I had a lot of fun with this and I'm going to try more mixed media projects.

So let's see how you interpret the theme, and remember, Craft for the Craic isn't just for cardmakers - whatever you've crafted, we want to see it!
