These are the rules
- 1 Punch only. Use this as many times as you like but it must only be the one
- An ink Spray of your colour choice.
- One mask, stencil, or template
- Some bling
- Washi tape
- A tag of some sort with journaling on it.
- 4 Patterned papers of your choice. One of these papers must be cut into an 8×8 piece.
1 punch - EK success vines punched along the bottom of the 8x8
1 inkspray - Tsukineko Eucalyptus walnut antiquing solution used for the masking and sprayed on the background paper.
1 mask - TCW Mini ledger on the 8x8...
Some bling - black rhinestones flourish
Some washi tape - Prima lifetime washi tape...think it is really fabric tape but close enough!
Tag with journaling - hidden journaling, cut from one of the pieces of patterned papers.
4 Patterned papers - Used We R Memory Keepers Family Keepsake papers.
I also challenged Mum to do this as well and here is what she came up with, I love it!
Punch: I used a Fiskar’s edge punch (name unknown to me) to cut a
border for along one side of the 8 x 8 square, and to the left of the photograph border.
Ink Spray: Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist colour Wheatfields, to tone
down the pink and the blue spot background papers. ...
Mask: I used a chipboard sewing machine cut-out as a mask, so the sewing machine image was left in the original paper colour.
Bling: This was difficult as it is not a ‘blingy” photograph, or era. Our 1959 dresses had clean straight lines, and the shiniest thing we had was our shoes. I fussy cut some matching roses to add some depth to the framing, and used two brads as flower centres: one gold brad (sprayed with glimmer mist to make it softer), and one jewel brad.
Washi tape is used to hold down two edges of the 8 x 8 square, and the button card.
4 patterned papers: Kaisercraft Needle & Thread Collection – Seam, Knit, Hem and Bobbin
Tag: cut from one of the pages in the collection and tucked behind the photograph. The journaling reads:
The first outing for our new best summer clothes was the A & P Show – rain, hail or shine.
Mum did all our sewing, but six years after this photo was taken daughter no. 5 was born, and we older girls were told we had to learn to sew – fair enough, Mum!
