Featured Artist

Today's project was my attempt at the vintage look. I combined the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper and Fabric, the Vintage Flower Adornments, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Basic Pearls, and the new Mother of Mine Stamp.

I sponged some of the edges with Always Artichoke ink, crinkled up other edges, and unraveled the fabric edges to try and give it that aged look. The fabric was adhered using the Anywhere Glue Stick.

A big Thank You to Mary Fish for the opportunity to be her featured artist today on her blog!

A beautiful card Martha! The inked edges combined with flowers and pearls speaks vintage to me.

Nicely done, Martha! The vintage series does help vintage-challenged folks like myself! Thanks for saying how you adhered the fabric. I wasn't sure how to do that. I have some coming soon!

Beautiful! I love how you embossed the scalloped circle and how you added the red to the heart on the mother stamp!
