A Vintage Giggle

Woohoo, two posts in one day!  I love vintage stuff, but still struggle to pull it off.  Today's SCS challenge WT 244 was to use a faux finish or texture.  One of my favorite techniques is faux tin, so I decided to do a faux tin heart and use it as an embellishment with some Jenni Bowlin papers & Bingo cards I got recently.

This kind of looks like a jumbled mess to me; but maybe someone with a sense of humor will enjoy it as a birthday card!  All images are from Sweet Bee by CHF, as is the backgrounder.  The crocheted flower is from my sweet friend Kristin and the prima is from my sweet friend Tammy!  Here's a closeup of the faux tin heart:

To make the faux tin, simply cut a shape from Really Rust cardstock; dauber it heavily with Really Rust ink, then sponge Chocolate Chip ink over top.  I distressed the edges as well.  Isn't that flower cute?

Thank for coming by again!  Any questions, just holler!

  6. It's not your typical type card but I love the end result! Thanks for the directions on the "tinning" process...I've got the supplies and think I'll give it a try. I've always liked those tin star ornaments....
