Sunshine Monday - Aged Copper


I love creating with Sunshine and Giggles images... and every Monday I get to show you what I've been working on.

For today's card, I printed out one of the Cody and Friends images on white cardstock. Yes, I did say white! It sure doesn't look white, does it? That's because I then sponged sand-colored ink all over the image and took a clean unused Aquarium filter to speckle copper onto the image as well. I also sponged copper ink onto the edges of the image to give it an aged feel.

The background paper is an actual page from an old dictionary I have. I backed it with black cardstock and a piece of copper cardstock, too. The embellishments add more aged copper to this vintage card.

It was a fun one to create!

Ooo, I love the vintage, antique feel of this card! Geez, so how many worn dictionaries have I disarded that could have be used this way? Great idea! {hug}
