Hope you are good!
Yuk!! Its been a little soggy here in the UK,
I'm really hoping that the summer sun finds us sooner rather than later!
Today I'm sharing a make, inspired by a vintage shop fitters receipt
I picked up from a local junk store (I've included part of it next to the photo)
I decided to photo copy the original because as much as I love to always use originals, sometimes I have to stop myself as they are just too lovely to tear into...this was one of those don't touch it occasions!
I did however use a very old original envelope (from 1887)
as my base, along with a handwritten note from the same time period.
I used distress and Archival inks to some of the papers to give and extra worn look...
the photograph is also original (a CDV card)
I added some remnant rub-ons, some stitching and a cut out from Tims sizzix die
I also added an old military button, some vintage lace and a feather
I created a frame for the photograph using stitches and some Idea-ology pins
(the case around the 7 playing card is one of my vintage finds)
To finish I attached some fine cotton to the found objects (Idea-ology)
and mounted onto some music paper.
I really hope you like this vintage make, as always feel free to leave a comment,
I really do appreciate each and everyone.
Have a lovely week
bye for now
