So grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy the tour.

After much deliberation (and making many many projects) I've decided to just show just one. This is because this is such a large and detailed project - and it took my so long to make. It's a double tri-shutter card with a vintage theme. I've made it into a mini-album to showcase some of the photos we took in Europe last year on holidays. I used - Soft Suede (ink, cardstock and ribbon), Autumn Traditions DSP and the stamp set Vintage Vogue - all from the new mini along with some Very Vanilla cardstock. In keeping with the vintage feel I was going for I printed all my photos is sepia and sponged around the edges with Soft Suede ink to give them an aged feel. Finally to photograph the project I placed it on a dark brown backdrop and lower light than normal. Hopefully this gives it a nice aged feel.

Well, that’s all from me. I hope you left your comment to be in with a chance at the ‘Blog Candy’. Now you’re off to enjoy the wonderful creations of Kerry Bunting.
