Modern meets Vintage

Apr 13, 2012

When I saw Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s blog post HERE I was super intrigued with the color combinations she used with my Antiquated Collection stamp sets. Julie’s pieces have a modern meets vintage feel that blends together beautifully. So I thought I would give it try and see what happened. I gotta say, I have really enjoyed this week of playing and experimenting with new products and different techniques.

To get started, I first sprayed Maya Mist onto my tag and dried it with a heat tool. Next I stamped the tag with the Antiquated Collection Perfumery stamp set using Jet Black Archival Ink. Once I had the background as I liked it. I stamped the lady from the Antiquated Collection Society Lady stamp set. To give the tag dimension I traced leaves around the tags edge using the 6″ x 6″ leaf frame stencil and ginko leaves a.k.a. flowers from the 6″ x 6″ ginko leaves stencil. Once I had the images traced I painted them in using acrylic paint and outlined them using a white poster paint pen.  Once dry I accented the leaves with veins using the same white poster paint and stamped the inside of the ginko leaves a.k.a. flowers using the Antiquated Collection Perfumery stamp set using Jet Black Archival Ink.

I dried the Archival Ink on the flowers with a heat tool. Then to make the flowers pop a bit more I covered each one with Diamond Glaze, while still wet I sprinkled Maya Road Iridescent Glitter on top. To add more interest to the tag I placed the tag on a craft mat and cut around some of the leaves and in between the arms of the lady using a craft knife.

I like how the tag looks as though you are peeking into a garden as a Victorian lady takes a stroll.
