Some cards and a Plaque


Thought I'd try something vintage for a bit of a change, don't really know if I've pulled it off as everything vintage I try comes out somewhat distressed, but hey ho, never mind!!! So the top left is a piece of thick card covered with texture paste and coated in various mediums - gesso, paint dabbers sandal, black, gold, silver, pearl, white, hazelnut and espresso and then I experimented on each corner. All with crackle paint, one brushed pewter, one antique bronze, one tarnished brass and one rock candy. Added lace, flowers, gem and a charm on a chain.

The other 5 are cards. I used vintage images, lace, various embellishments, vintage papers and run some pieces through the big shot and sanded them.
