Child’s Play Vintage Collage

I had soooo much fun with this collage card!  I found these fabulous vintage images at Graphics Fairy and decided to use them as part of my collage for the Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use it challenge.

I have few different things going on in this card.

I’ll start with the DIY dp, in the background.  I printed this great alphabet chart image fromThe Graphics Fairy onto vanilla cardstock at full size.  Easy!

For the main panel, I printed the same image at 2.5 x 3.5″ on vanilla card stock and then put it back in the printer making sure that I printed the children’s silhouette positioned over the chart.  Then I added some rubber stamping to these printed images using Flourishes Timeless Quotes (flourish in the corners), and a Prima Marketing clear stamp frame around the children playing.   I  tore the edges and inked with Tea Dye Distresss ink.

The dp behind the collage is from Cosmo Cricket Odds and Ends (abc’s).

I wanted to dress up my inexpensive dollar store lace ribbon, so I used a ruching technique I learned in the CARDS magazine JUNE 2011.   Took a little extra time, but was worth it, since I think the lace looks so much better now, with this wavy ruffles.

Challenges  I played in with this card:

Tuesday Trio: sketch with lace

Simon Says Stamp: Anything goes

Simon Says Stamp and Show: stitching (diagonal stitch used to ruche the ribbon)

Graphics Fairy Brag Monday: using GF images
