Hello and Happy New Year!
This week's theme on Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is to incorporate something old and something new, appropriate to kick off the new year. I decided to incorporate antique hardware, key and pin for her "something old" with new art parts by Studio 490 and a quote from the "Twilight" book.
I started with the large heart frame, coloring the top frame with brushed corduroy distress stain and stamping with the script stamp.
Then I added the art part leaf/scroll, coloring with crushed olive distress stain, and stamping with forest moss distress ink and embossing that with clear embossing powder.
I found this old hardware at an antique store and I just LOVE how old and grungy it is. I didn't do anything except adhere it to the frame with some long fasteners.
I wanted to use a sentiment that gave a nod to the "old/new" theme and thought this quote from the Twilight books would be perfect, since the book is about the relationship between things that are very old blending in with the new (Edward and Bella). Yeah... I know... I'm a Twilight geek.... :) I stamped the quote with a mini alpha set and adhering the words to corrugated cardboard in the center of the frame, and added some 7 Gypsies dome studs to the corners.
Hope you enjoyed today's project - if you're able to join in the fun you'll have a chance at winning a $50 shopping spree to Simon Says Stamp!
Have a great week!
