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.
