Thanks for another wonderful challenge, Julia! I do like the vintage appeal of cracked, aged things...check it out.
It was only a matter of time, that I married this sentiment from Cloud Nine Designs with Stampers Anonymous beautiful tribal grandmother. I stamped both on Neenah smooth white. The Wrinkles quote in Memento Paris Dusk is surrounded by My Mind's Eye clear acrylic negative with TH di walnut stain. I embossed the edges with clear and the "W". The grandmother is inked with the big and juicy rainbow pad. I wadded and tore and wadded some more creating even more wrinkles in the paper. Finally the wrinkles were distressed with TH di vintage photo. Both of these images are popped on foam. My card base is SU pacific point which was stamped with Judikins crackle background stamp. I finished this card with bits of trim for additional texture. A net of olive green, chartreuse chenille poms and a reclaimed scallop bit from packaging.
Thanks so much for looking and come over to my blog, I've got more thoughts on WRINKLES...you know we're all gonna have 'em!
