Have you seen the images at Twisted Papers?? What a fabulous website! I had so much fun navigating through the vintage images in almost every subject! I chose this image and with a few clicks, I downloaded the photo, saved it to a file on my computer and was ready to go. I loved it because I could size the photo to fit my card, something that you can't do with a stamp!
I printed this onto cardstock from The Paper Temptress on my Canon inkjet printer. With so much detail in the image, I decided to leave it as is-no coloring necessary! I used a technique called Wisped Frames (Technique Junkies)but then I trimmed a little off the edges and sewed on top of it, so I think I all but removed it. I tell myself that there are no mistakes in papercrafting, only happy accidents!
I had fun embellishing the image with some stitching and cotton lace. I made the pin from a corsage pin purchased at WalMart in the floral section. I added some pearls from my junk box and glued the last one on with Fabri-Tac to hold the others in place. And lastly, I glued the long bead at the end of the pin. The bow is tulle.
The sentiment is one of my favorites from I Brake For Stamps. I've used it so many times!
I hope you've enjoyed the project and thanks for stopping by today!!
