Today I am sharing more details about the index card for the Art section. What I envision for this section is little art cards about art things I love, whether it be an image of supplies I love or even just an art page with a technique, favorite stamp, just whatever is artsy that makes me happy.
At the center of this card is one of the Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps. I think these are so fun! They are double sided. On this particular set, one side is a vintage photo and the other is a vintage image from things like trading or calling cards and photographers cabinet cards. This one had a line drawing of a woman surrounded by cherubs as she sketches.
To enhance the image, I colored in the details using Copic Markers. I used very light shades, some of which I applied to my blender to make sure they would be very faint and light. I added the ink bottle rub-on to make the card look like a vintage trading card and then inked the surface and edges of the card with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I love the way the Distress Ink softened the marker colors and made them look aged.
Like all of the index cards, I added a small phrased typed onto a scrap of patterned paper. The typewriter I use is a small portable manual typewriter that belonged to my mom from before I was born. I love that it adds a sentimental and vintage touch to my project.
Okay, there you have it, the first card! Be sure to stop back by tomorrow to see another!
