This is another card I made using the retro set "Route 66" from Artistic Outpost. I broke into my stash of Tim Holtz "Fragments" for this one…I don’t know why I hoard my stash so much…it’s not like I don’t have plenty, and I certainly know where to buy more!!! I love the Die Cuts with a View "Travel" pack-these colors really set the pace for the retro feel I was going for…
Supplies: Stamps: Route 66 (Artistic Outpost); Paper: Travel (DCWV), Tempting Turquoise (Stampin’ Up!), Whisper White (SU!); Ink: Tempting Turquoise and Glorious Green Classic (SU!), White Craft (SU!), Vintage Photo Distress ink (Tim Holtz); Accessories: Fragments (Tim Holtz), Glossy Accents (adhesive for Fragments and Oregon Rain Drops), Oregon Rain Drops (Pink Hedgehog), clear embossing powder, sponge for antiquing)
I used the direct to paper technique on WW card stock to do the "fragment" pieces. I used Tempting Turquoise and Glorious Green just to give a little color since I didn’t want them to be stark white. I then stamped the words "Retro" and "Round Trip" in Tempting Turquoise and glued fragments over the words using Glossy Accents (by Ranger). I cut the fragments out with a paper snips.
The patterned card stock was aged using Vintage Photo Distress ink and a sponge. I also aged the edges of the Tempting Turquoise cs.
The "diner and car" image was stamped on Tempting Turquoise cs with Whisper White Craft ink (SU!), and heat embossed with clear EP. Clear Oregon Raindrops from the Pink Hedgehog were attached at the corners in place of brads.
The Oregon Raindrops are a fantastic buy at Pink Hedgehog Papercrafts…Oregon Raindrops are comparable to Dew Drops and similar products on the market. You can purchase either large jars of approximately 470 raindrops for $2.20 or small jars of approximately 120 raindrops for 60 cents. What’s really cool about the clear ones is that they can be "dyed" with alcohol based markers (Prismacolor, Copic, etc.)
Thanks for looking!
