I discovered a new exciting place called "Crafters Digital Art Center". The site has new digital images by many gifted artists. The site is just waiting for you to sign on as a member and join in for challenges and fun.
This darling little image is called "Incredible Friends". As you know, digital images are the rage. They can be sized and the images flipped. The possibilities are endless! This digital image is from Nicecrane Designs and created by the very talented Ignacio. He has a passion for "Vintage" images. His website and digital images can be found.....
This a close up of the image, "Incredible Friends".
This is how I created my vintage background.
The challenge was to use this "Incredible" little image created by Ignacio and to give it a vintage look of at least 100 years. I used designer paper for the background and sponged Vintage Photo" Distress Ink around the edges. I used white ribbon and altered the color with a Copic marker that matched the color of the distress ink. W!hy invest in every color of ribbon when you can alter them with your markers? LOL OK, I confess, I alter my ribbon ... but I also have every color under the sun... You just have to have it!!! LOL
The focal image was place on the distressed background. As you can see, the altered ribbon coordinates nicely with the background and focal image. I then curled one bottom corner of the focal image with a quilling tool to enhance the vintage effect.
I hope you enjoyed my card and will stop by soon. If you haven't tried the Crafters Digital Art Center or visited Nicecrane Designs, please take the time to do so... you will be in for a treat!
