Well, I'm back to working full time.  So, I'm sorry, but you'll see less of me.  I'm sure it's not gonna ruin your life, but I will miss interacting with you all as much as I've gotten to over the last few months!  Anyway, we've got another fabulous VINTAGE challenge for you over at Make My Monday!  We'd like to see some projects that relate to CHILDHOOD but are still VINTAGE in feel.

Here's my card~


Nothing says childhood to me like Halloween!  And when I saw this darling image I knew I had to use it!  I started by saturating the picture with pearl glimmer mist.  And yes, I mean SATURATING.  I sprayed it about 20 times.  I used a heat gun to dry it, cut it into different sized "tiles" and then sponged around each piece to create a faux tile look.  I then glued the pieces back together on a piece of brown cardstock and added some ribbon. I then placed some rhinestones on the image randomly for some glam and added it to my card.  I realized I didn't have a sentiment, and so I added the sentiment at the very end...with MUCH trepidation!  But it worked!

I hope you like it!  It was so much fun to make this card--and I LOVE the way it turned out!  Thanks for stopping by--don't forget the other MMM DT gals!  Say hi and see their amazing creations today!  And don't forget to play along, too!  Happy stamping! :)

This is brilliant - very innovative, and I rrally like the way it gives glimpses of what is there using the tiled effect.

Absolutely fabulous the tile effect. It's not much fun working full-time is it? I always meant to craft when I get home from work but then after housework am always exhausted ....wishes, Suzanne x
