Moments To Remember

A little vintage creation for my DT piece this week for The Stamp Attic using the fabulous VINTAGE set.
I have stamped the ruler and crown in the background with Archival Inks coffee and black and then sponged with Distress Ink brushed corduroy to give that vintage feel to my card. Throw into the mix a little matting onto Bazzill card and some machine stitching and my background is complete.
I have cut three hearts from thick card and covered with torn vintage paper added a little Distress Stain picket fence to tone the text down a little and to add to that aged feel, added a little machine stitching for dimension and stamped my images with Archival Ink. To add a little more interest I have hand stitched three of the Maya Road mini spools to one of my hearts.
"Moments To Remember" sentiment seemed the perfect finishing touch to my card.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
