Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge. My inspiration was this fine young scholarly "vintage" lad from Rogue Redhead Designs' "Relish Reading" plate. I colored him with Copics, masked him off and stamped the almanac stamp - not fully inked up, so that the impression would be mottled - in antique linen for a background. (I used the same almanac stamp for the background paper on the top part of the card.) I cut two additional panels, one patterned paper and one vintage text (of course!), and went at all three with Tim's distresser. Some walnut stain Distress Ink made them even shabbier. Then I applied them to the card all kattywompus (that means crooked here in the south, in case you couldn't guess LOL!). There's a bit of hardware from Stampin' Up, tied with some grosgrain ribbon just like those old fashioned belt-type thingies they carried their stacks of schoolbooks with. The sentiment is also from Relish Reading.
Hope everyone's having a great weekend! It is cool and crisp and sunny here - I looooove fall!
