Embrace the Old!

It's another year, and this year i think my resolution should be to Blog more regularly instead of every couple of months…. 

Lets pray that this year i'm able to stick to my resolution!!!

Anyways its time for this year's first blog contest from Simon Says Stamp and Show, this time they are bringing in an old concept… Challenge: Embrace the old!!!

now then, as usual, there are tooooo many choices for this one… but, i thought that i should do a vintage looking card instead of an old technique…. so i decided to do a very Sherlock Holmes kind of effect… the baroque cut out is a paper from T!m's crowded attic stash and then embossed with a wood grain texture… i hammered the brads and added alcohol inks on to it…

I really enjoyed creating this vintage piece… hope you enjoy it too….
