This inspiration photo is from one of my favorite local shops, Today's Country Store in Sumner, WA. Their little logo phrase is "where everything old is new again" - love that. They have the neatest selction of both old and new things. OK, on to the card. On the damask background paper I stamped a "peeled paint" backgrounder in gray and sanded it to mimick the doors in the picture. If you double click the photo you'll be able to see it. Then I stamped Damask Designs in Pure Poppy ink leaving some spots with less ink to make it look distressed. Bird and semtiment are from Bird Watching, corner detail is Fancy Flourishes. I stitched a branch for the bird to perch on and added hot fix red rhinestones. I added a strip of Papertrey Ink white velvet ribbon down the center of the gingham ribbon.
p.s. I bought those old red chairs in the picture. They are at the powder coaters being transformed:)
