Vintage Collage

The inchie challenge theme on the Small World of Inchies blog* this week is Vintage.


The white card base was coloured with Distress Ink (walnut stain). This was covered in a piece of linen, which had been coloured with distress ink & left to dry. The edges were then frayed.

I added a strip of tape measure showing imperial measurements.

I cut out an image of a vintage car. I added two old watch screws for the hubcaps & applied gunmetal metallic rub-on.

I took a piece of lace patterned vellum & aged it by tearing the edges & using walnut stain ink. I added a cog from an old watch & the word doo-dad from Tim Holtz distressables range.

I then sprayed over the inchie using a mini mister spray containing a blend of walnut stain ink & water.
