Burnt Edges Vintage Painting
Happy Friday! I'm back with another Chapel Road project to share with you today. This month we are doing feminine themed projects, and today I've gone with a sort of "Middle Ages" feel.
This old-fashioned portrait is from the Margaret stamp set, and I inked it up with Straw and Wild Honey inks and then used the Burnt Edges technique (from Technique Junkies) around the edges. It feels like I just walked into a museum and I'm looking at a musty old painting by da Vinci or Rembrandt.
I added the sentiment (also from the Margaret set) below the portrait, and adhered some sheer brown ribbon tied in a bow to the upper right corner. Some paper from Basic Grey's Curio collection completes the vintage feel of this card.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
