Vintage Travel...

Time for a new challenge over at It's All About the Vintage.  The theme is "Travel".  My piece for the Design Team is a decorated paper mache suitcase.  I hope you like it!

The case was covered in Marianne Design Tissue Tape and painted with a "tan" acrylic paint.  I made two panels for the inside sections which I coloured with Aged Photo distress inks.  I stamped various text and image stamps - masking the focal images; i.e. the glamorous lady, the Eiffel Tower etc. Stamps used were:- Indigo Blu, Stampers Anonymous, Marianne Design and the freebie stamps from a Magazine ("driving gloves").
The car and the key are Marianne Design die cuts.  These were cut in silver metal sheet and aged with a mixture of black and brown Stazon inks.

The lady was stamped, masked and then paper pieced before colouring in with Promarkers.

The fortnightly challenge over at It's All About the Vintage is a beautiful challenge blog and is this time round sponsored by:-  Crafty Sentiments - they have a lovely prize for the winner!

I would love to enter my "travel suitcase" into the following challenges please:-




For those interested I did become an elected Town Councillor last week.....first time I had been to a "count" - a very nerve racking experience.    Suzanne x
