Our new challenge at Double D is "Looking Back in Time". Think of something that reminds you of days gone by.
Do you recognize the White Rabbit on my card? I read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass when I was eight years old. Now, there's a bit of nostalgia from the (ahem) distant past! I was able to bring this memory back thanks to an honest to goodness vintage image digitally remastered at Digital Two for Tuesday (and it's free!).
More card talk in a minute, but first have a look at our inspiration board:
The Double D team will vote on creative winners, and there is a prize for a random winner, as well:
I've had this image printed and awaiting color for I-don't-know-how-many years. I always thought it would be fun for a belated birthday card, but never got around to it. I do have a "sorry I'm late" sentiment, but it was too small and the font wasn't quite right for the vintage look, so I used this one instead and I think it still gets the point across.
An ornate frame, a pad of old-timey papers, watches cut from one of the papers, sepia-toned Copic coloring with just a spot of color... I don't do much vintage these days, but, gosh, this was fun. I also stamped an old SU Sanded background over the image and sentiment panels to give a little more aging, and then finished it off with copper brads.
I even propped the photo with an antique book -- Poems by James Thomson (born 1700). I don't remember where I got the book, but it has an inscription in it dated 1898. Definitely looking back in time!
Well, that's enough from me, I suppose. I hope you'll take a look at the Double D blog and all my teammates' vintage-themed cards and be inspired to play along. Thank you so much for your visit!
