Nordsalten-Hobbyklubb Challenge - Vintage.....

Hello,

I have had the honour of being asked to be guest designer by Marielle for this week's challenge for Nordsalten-Hobbyklubb. The challenge this week is vintage. Thank you so much for asking me Marielle. Please do go check out the creations by the Nordsalten-Hobbyklubb team. They are so amazingly talented and there creations are stunning!


I have used a vintage photograph which I have distressed with Tim's distressing tool. This and everything on my card has been distressed with vintage photo. I have sprayed lots of iridescent gold glimmer mist onto my papers. The sentiment has been stamped with versafine sepia. I have used liquid pearls for the border of the sentiment. The stickle glue I have used is star dust. I punched a border out of vellum and edged this with gold pen.

I have been sent these awards by the very gorgeous and talented Terry




.
Thank you so very much for passing these onto me Terry. I would like to pass these onto everyone who visits me as a huge thank you for all your amazing support to me!

Well, thank you so much for visiting me and I wish you a wonderful day!

love
kim x
