Not sure that the man I have in mind for this creation would take too kindly to being called vintage even if he is older than me and I am vintage. He may well say that his bike is a lot newer than the one in on the card as well.
I have made this for two of my favourite challenge blogs Craft-Room Challenge and Addicted to Stamps and More
At the Craft-room the theme this time is 'Something for a Man' and the ATSAM have the Vintage theme this week. I thought I would get in early there this week as I have been making things for the challenges there and forgetting to post them--thanks to Florence I did scrape in last week with my entry.
Always wonderful inspiration from the DTs at both blogs and they are all very friendly which is nice.
I chose a piece of A4 card and printed the quote onto it then folded it in half, Next I distressed around the edge. Then I searched for an old map that I had bought a while ago to use for crafting. It is paper stuck onto canvas and tears really well to give a vintage feel. The wooden bike emblie is from Crafty Emblies where there are wonders to be had for every subject.
I made the bunting from the map and punched some flowers and coloured them with Promarkers to match the water on the map. Added Happy Birthday and a couple more crafty emblies and that's it finished.
Thanks for coming to visit.
Love Chrissie xx
