Life is an adventure – Mixed Media Card Challenge Vol. 1, October

Hello there, lovelies! A bit late, but still 1st of October tonight and therefore time for the new Mixed Media Card Challenge for October!! This time it´s all about vintage. As optional aelement you can add a key.

I am not very good at vintage. So I went and googled the word vintage and found a definition for it that I could live with. In fashion you could call old jeans „vintage“ so I figured, I could use older product to create a „vintage“ card. And this is what I came up with:

Those velvet ribbon flowers for me represent vintage in a way. Also the old fashioned stamp images of keys, locks and swirls are kind of old looking too :).

Also a little bit about how I created the card: I first applied/wiped a layer of Distress Stain onto the background to create a kind of „faux watercolour“ background. After that I went along and stamped the stamp images in two tones of browns over the blue layer. Next I hand drew (very freely) some lines with a golden glitter glue to create a „net“ over the previous layers and finally I also added some blue and white inks splatters here and there.

For decoration I chose an old Basic Grey sticker, doodled with copper glitter glue around it and then added the flowers. The sentiment stamp is by Ali Edwards for Technique Tuesday and I cut it in half.

Now it is your turn to create a vintage card for this challenge!! We are very eager to see what you come up with!! See you at MMCC :),

xoxo, Sanna

  1. Ha ha, that’s a coincidence – I googled Vintage too and then I googled Vintage mixed media, because I love some vintage, but wasn’t sure how to translate it to MM.
    Your card is gorgeous and I love the process – so clever to add the gold lines. The pinwheels are beautiful too!

  2. Oooh! I do like a bit of vintage……great for man cards, I think, too…..your velvet looks amazing on those ‚flowers‘ here……got my thinking cap on!!!
