I'm so excited to be a part of the blog hop!!I was beyond thrilled when I found this great ning site to get inspiration and share what minimal skills I have compared to some very talented ladies.
The theme for the Blog hop is Easter/ Spring. With so many ideas hopping around here is what I made.
I am guessing around 1940 but it could be older.
I started by distressing the Vintage Love GLITZ papers with both water and then Tim Holtz distress inks.
Have you tried this ripping and inking technique?
Some I created with my Cricut. Some are fabric, or twisted papers.
I even used an old piece of broken jewelery to accent this cluster.
The blue eggs are from a Stampin Up stamp set I have that has no name on the container. All card stock is from CTMH. I actually got this pleated piece of lace at Hobby Lobby on a roll and sprayed it with a smooch spray to make it this rich color.
I used a few of my favorite pearl swirls from Prima and a distressed kraft tag from Kraft Outlet.They sell some wonderful packages so you can try a lot of kraft paper & products out.Most of the layers are brown and Kraft colored card stock-love that combo with older pictures.
