This is my entry for the current monthly challenge at Caardvarks.
I decided to try another shabby card. I was going for a vintage wallpaper look. I may have gone a little overboard with the distressing, but I honestly like the vintage feel.
The striped paper is from Paperpizazz, and the others are from scraps. I used two Hero Arts stamps: Wavy Line Pattern and Life Changes. Both were stamped with Versafine, Vintage Sepia. I used Tim Holtz, Frayed Burlap, distress ink to warm up the images. The sheet music is a photocopy, and the old photograph is actually a picture of my Aunt Connie and her friend, also a photocopy. I would never cut these wonderful original photos. My Grandmother was a seamstress and saved every button she ever had. I am now the lucky owner of quite a collection of vintage buttons.
