Vintage Jam Challenge Card

This one was made using paper only-NO STAMPING! AHHH! Actually, I find it freeing to use no stamps once in a while. I don’t have to worry about how to colour the image, what colour paper and ink etc. This card is for a sketch challenge, Sketchy Thursday #52, ESS52. It is also for SCS Ways To Use It-Red. WT235. Scroll down for a second post!

shabby jam card 

Don’t you love it when you can use the front and back of a sheet of paper and still have tons left? This Webster’s Pages sheet has multiple cool vintage labels on one side and a beautiful star pattern on the back. I cut carefully around this oval label and hand cut the two mats around it. The brown paper under the twill tape is a dictionary page covered in tattered leather Glimmer Mist.  The base is Kraft sponged with Vintage photo Distress ink.

Enjoy, Rebecca
