Vintage monotone “Shabby Card” with fancy edge

I’d been wanting to  use this image for a while now, but was waiting for the right project to fall in to place.  It’s one of the older Scrapper’s Delights images and has more detail and shadowing  than the newer style images… but lends itself perfectly to this vintage “shabby” look.  Because of the style it’s incredibly  quick and easy to  achieve this look, even if you aren’t a regular colorer.

Pencils and an alcohol blender pen.. a round stiff bristle brush and an ink pad…  no  hardcore precise coloring skills needed.  Even my 4 year old can dry ink these vintage shabby style backgrounds… in fact, if I recall he “hijacked” helped do this one lol.

The fancy edge border card is a cut file from CraftsUPrint “Over the Edge Floral Border 6”
Image is  Holly Hobbie Set 4
Colored with CraZart pencils, a home made alcohol blender pen and some Ranger Distress inks.  Fancy border has a Gelly Roll Stardust outline for a “lil bling”.

Bring on the clown…. BEEP BEEP!!!

Here’s a fun card…. it’s a slider card, but I won’t show you images of it open, as the message inside is personal…and not very PC haha.  There are a gazillion tutorials on making slider cards… it isn’t hard to find them if you fancy giving it a go.

Bonzo was print and cut on the Circut Explore, colored with Zig Kurecolor and Chameleon pens.

The slider frame has one of the My little Paper World corner die cuts, which you can see peaking out behind Bonzo ( Another group buy possibly coming up for anyone interested in purchasing Samantha’s dies and cutting shipping costs to the US ..PM me if interested )

The sentiment is  part of the current Freebie Friday  package  for the progressive challenge over on the  Scrapper’s Delights Facebook group, and also available in the store.
The dots were just punched circles  using a green glitter stock and the slide tab  has that glitter card on the tip too.

And that lady’s and gents is the end of this show…. this is my last project as part of the Scrapper’s Delights Freebie Friday DT team.  I am stepping down and making room for a fab new DT member….  but never fear, I am still  going to be working with Nicky on the Monthly Challenge Team and Mid Month Inspirations.

This clown isn’t going anywhere  just yet  🙂
