Design Team Project #3 ....

 Good morning everyone, I'm back with my final project using the Darkroom Door London Collection stamp set and yes it's another card this time with a vintage feel to reflect the main stamp image.

 I started by layering a sheet of printed newspaper imagery from the Kaisercraft Black & White Timeless Paper Pad to 6x6 Kraft cardstock, which was then swiped over with Distress Ink (Vintage Photo), the edges have been distressed using the Tim Holtz Tonic Paper Distresser and then edged with Archival Ink (Coffee).

 To adhere the centre piece, the strip along the bottom & the Ideaology Word Band I have used my new fav 3d product .. Stix2 Clear Foam On A Roll (available from Snazzy's).

For the centre panel I used Manilla cardstock which has been inked with Vintage Photo, then spritzed with water, again it has been distressed at the edges and inked as above.

Lesley is up next (Monday) with her projects for the month, if you would like to be in with a chance of winning either Vol 1 or Vol 2 from this collection, please leave a comment HERE.
