A Step Back in Time...

Happy Tuesday!  It's a new challenge at Creative Card Crew!  We are going Vintage!  Our sponsor this week is:

They kindly donated some images for us to work with!  I used "A Helping Hand," to make a card for my younger brother's 30th birthday!  I love this image so much! It just felt perfect for the occasion!  I dyed the white cardstock with black tea. I  wrinkled it, resoaked it and then ironed it dry.  I then inserted it in the printer to print the image.  I colored the image with Copics in brown tones to authenticate the aged look. I finished it with the buttons and the gold toned brads!

Please visit the rest of the DT for some more inspiration!

I really love this card, Janna. Wow, you really went to some great lengths to make your distressing authentic - tea dye and all. The buttons and the letters are fab and really add to the antique look. Wonderful job on this challenge!!
