Vintage Challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends

The Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge this week is to make a Vintage card.  For my DT inspiration card, I used a new stamp set called "I'm In Stitches"  soon to be released by Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Co.   I love the stamp of the old Sewing Machine and was anxious to ink it up. I stamped it on White CS with Versamark and embossed with Black EP. I colored the metal parts with Silver Pens and then fancy cut the image...that was the hard part! Glad I have good scissors.  I used Brown CS as a base card, attached  a camel colored mat , and then a mat of Digi Paper "Old Paper" downloaded from Graphics Fairy. Before placing the PP mat,  I distressed the edges with a distressing tool and sponged with Distress ink and stamped the sentiment on the top  and the  tape measure across the bottom with Distress Ink. The dress forms were a part of the digi paper.

Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. "I'm in Stitches"
Ink: Versamark, DI Brushed Corduroy
EP: Ranger Black Detail
Pens: Metallic Silver and Gold Jelli-ink Pens, Atyou Silver Pen
Papers: MFP's Neutral Paper Pack, Digi Paper from Graphics Fairy
3D Foam Dots

Personal note- I love this stamp set because it reminds me of sewing machines that my mother and grandmother used and a machine  (a collector item, I'm sure) my Aunt Julia gave me a few years before she died.  I decided to pull it out of  its case and share a picture.  The warranty  is dated August 1949.
Please join in the challenge this week for a chance to win a MFP stamp Set. You have until 3PM on Friday June 22, 2012 to post your card. Remember, if you use MFP, a Heinrich Company stamps your name will be entered into the drawing twice. 
Thanks for dropping by. I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
