Vintage Design team challenge # 53: Sketch

Wow 2012 came and went quickly!
It was a very good and creative year for me, 
with far too little time devoted to blogging and 
visiting my blog-friends out there!
I plan to change that in 2013.

I will be posting photos of the projects that I didn't get time 
to post in 2012 soon, 
Everything from more furniture renovating, canvas painting to cards
 but first I want to tell you 
about the newest challenge over at 
Andrea has made a great sketch to follow.
and the team have made some beautiful inspriational cards.

I cut out the die hearts from a scrap of aquarell paper 
with test paint colours from another project and applyed 
a thick layer of glaze.

Sketch to follow:

Here is my take on Andreas Sketch:

 Here you can see a close-up of my new fabric tape,
I'm loving it!

 I really enjoyed working with this sketch,
all the layers makes it easy to give a lovley vintage feel.

 Card nr 1

 Card nr 2.

I have used design papers from Macaulay Arts, 
MME, Minne Hjørne and Maja Design 
I have given all of of the papers edges a 'going over' 
with Distress Ink 'Old Paper', 'Vintage photo'
and a rub with a sissor edge.
I used Tim Holtz paints and Dyans spray to distress the 
old peice of corrigated cardboard.

Play with the sketch as we in the design team have done, 
You can rotate it as you will, 
but the sketch must be recognizable and
 as always here at Vintage challenges,
vintage style 
This time also you get extra time 
to deliver their submissions, 
In fact, until 
d 28th of Jan. 2013 at 10pm.

I look forward to visiting your blogs 
to see what you've all been up to, 
and gathering my 'left-out' projects from 2012 to show you.
Have fun! Hugs Nina

  4. Happy new year to you!
    Jeg elsker de to kort, de er så lækre i farverne og flot sat sammen.
    Men hvad er det for noget med eget design-papir, hvor kan jeg se det, jeg er så nysgerrig/nyfiken?


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment!
