Industrial - for Vintage Journey

Hello Everyone

The talented Tracy's 'Industrial' theme at A Vintage Journey was perfect for me as I needed a birthday card for my Brother who has retired from the Navy.

Here is what Tracy had to say....
Use your foil tape, or metallic card stocks with your texture fades/embossing folders
to create an Industrial creation of your own.  Whether it's a background or bloom or anything,
don't limit your paint colour to black - the Industrious technique looks great
with all colours of paint.

To create the background I used a piece of cream card and Tim's Spritz and Flick technique with Tea Dye Distress Stain and when it was dry I added some splatters with Ground Espresso Distress Paint.
To create the industrious layers I used Ranger's foil sheets adhered to some black cardstock and these were passed through two different Texture Fade embossing folders (by Tim Holtz) and then I applied Tim's Industrious Technique (as used by Tim for his January tag) which you can see demonstrated by Tim here.  I just love the way the red has turned out - I used Festive Berries Distress Paint.
For the 'birthday' sentiment I used Tim's Alphanumeric die set, cut from black card and backed onto an offcut from the base card.  The 'wishes' is one of Tim's chitchat stickers.

This really was a quick an easy card to make.  I mounted it onto black card and then onto a cream card base, edged with Tea Dye Distress Ink.

We hope you will join in this month at A Vintage Journey, as usual there is a £20 voucher from Countryview Crafts for one randomly drawn individual and the Creative Guides will choose
their top three projects to receive a Pinworthy Badge.

Thanks so much for your visit, I really appreciate it!

  Hugs, Anne xx
