Good Friday morning!  The weekend is almost here and I am so ready for a couple days off work and being home.  How about you? Today I am sharing one of the projects I made for the Stampavie July Online Magazine.  If you haven’t had the chance to see it you should surely check it out.  It is full of lots of wonderful and gorgeous creations made by the talented design team.

I stamped the image twice, once with versa on the base card layer and once with black on scrap paper.  I gold embossed the image on the base layer and painted.I wanted the sign and keys to be gold to create a vintage look.  I wanted the main images to be stamped in black so they would really show well when colored, cut out and popped up in front of the shelf. Cutting around these images took some time but I think the outcome was well worth the effort. I thought framing the images with the cream eyelet punched frame added to the vintage feel along with the gold multi loop bow bow.
