I cut up a vintage calendar to make this card. The shaped base was sitting in my scrap pile as you see it. I just collaged vintage images on top of it. I used a versamarker and clear EP on the headlights and windows of the bus and on the clock face. I used the stamp punch on the stamps. I used the color spritzer tool to spritz versamarker on the image and added some gold, silver, and copper (bronze) embossing powder. There is a bronze swirl clip, a silver heart brad, and a brushed gold *coin* that I made with a circle punch and an embossing folder. I sponged and dirtied the edges a bit more with Soft Suede and Early Espresso. Then, ON PURPOSE, I smushed a great big thumb print on a blank spot, just for fun! Fun card to make and it is definitely dirty-worthy, however, I think it is only worthy of silver--not gold.
