New England Stamper: Vintage Mill

August 31, 2011

Vintage Mill

While we hunkered down during the hurricane at the weekend, I tried a new Technique Junkies technique called Vintage Art. It was inspired by old pencil and ink artwork. The technique involves sponging the background in various shades of yellow and brown, then highlighting with white pencil.

I thought this Artistic Outpost image from their plate called Old Grist Mill would work well with this vintage looking technique. The paper in the background is from an old dictionary page showing the definition for 'mill'.

I have exciting news to share at the weekend plus some more cards to share later in the week, so I hope you can stop by again soon!

Beautiful card- The image is lovely and works so well with the technique. Great idea to have the dictionary page with the definition in the BG. I have a horrible time waiting for suprises- if I guess will you tell? Is there a new Rogue Redhead plate being released???
