...known Autumn too long...

I love this quote:

Supplies and notes:
  • Bingo card base stamped with one of my first-ever stamps: a white oak leaf by Inkadinkado inked with Ranger Archival in Jet Black
  • Next, the card base was "painted" with a swirly design using a waterbrush and Vintage Photo DOx.  I went over some of the swirls with Liquid Pearls in Rose Gold.
  • Tim's mini blueprint leaves (multiple years old) stamped with Tim's MM Palette in Hickory Smoke on the back of old library catalog cards
  • Stamped cards inked with DOx in Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber, and Spiced Marmalade then fussy-cut
  • The sentiment was typed on an old library card and inked with some remaining Vintage Photo DOx and coated with Distress Collage Medium in Crazing

I'll share this at the following challenges:


  1. Love your sweet card and it's sentiment!
    I'd love for you to link this up to the Cropstop blog where anything goes as long as you use a few products from companies they carry in the store. (You did!!)

  3. Lovely! I'm enjoying the creative way you've repurposed old library things - the librarian in me is smiling! I like how you've built up the background with various inks and stamps and bits of bling. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenge this week.

  4. Hey Mimi, so happy to see your card on the RETRO RUBBER gallery, it's beautiful and, as always, amazingly constructed. You have this unique ability to use different items and papers and arrange them in such a beautiful way that really blows me away.
