This week I discovered the joy of scanning! Who'da'- thunk'it? (Everyone else, I imagine) ;-)
This card is made from a magazine clipping I saved from some (long unremembered) magazine years ago. Unfortunately, I can't credit the sculpter (sorry mystery artist, you are long unremembered too, though worthy of remembering)...
I scanned and softened the image, printed on cardstock, aged with a used teabag, and then assembled the rest of the card.---My favourite thing about scanning images is that you can play with the colour. See my gallery for the original image and one altered to be turquoise (love that colour; can you tell?). Couldn't be easier.
The main background paper is sahara sand with paisley in sahara sand ink, and close to cocoa with weathered in sahara sand and french script in chocolate chip. I used a slightly damp babywipe with cho.chip to age the script. Faux stitching is done with a close to cocoa marker.
The ribbon and aged eyelets were bought on ebay.
Thanks for looking, Mel
