All the details of how he made this are over on his blog here
I love using hessian as a background and have made several projects with it so I was delighted to see Tim using it on his tag. The found relative photo looked great with the hint of colour added with distress markers.
Now I am not sure Tim would ever go this far towards his feminine side but I decided to create a wedding card for my version, yes seriously! I have friends tying the knot in July and I knew they would love this type of wedding card. Instead of the numbers stencil I added red hearts with a mixture of texture paste and red Dylusions ink.
Rather than using found relative prints as Tim does I like to use my real relative vintage photos. Below are my Grandparents on 25 July 1928 on their wedding day. Don't you love those hats!
|I decided to add some colour to them using my squeezed lemonade distress marker|
I also added some red to the flowers including my Nan's bouquet and my Granddad's button hole.
I wanted to use my very latest distress ink...fossilized amber and together with antique linen and worn lipstick I dyed some ribbon.
I edged the card with squeezed lemonade, note to self this is such a summery colour blend with the other inks.
I mounted my hessian strip onto a Kraft card blank. Here are some close ups

It's been a good bank holiday weekend. Although it's raining now we have had lots of warm sunshine too and enjoyed our lunch in the garden today.
I hope you all had some time to enjoy some crafting and that the sun peeped through for you at some point. Thanks for popping by.
Bye for now,
