heirloom gold spray…

Hello everyone~ Vintage Udfordring (Vintage Challenge) has a new challenge to use sprays, mists or paints.  I thought about this for quite some time and experimented here and there without latching onto an idea until I though of ‘Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls’ mist by Ranger.  I first used this mist after my dear friend Holly sent me a stunningly beautiful card that had been misted with this spray.  I fell instantly in love with the soft golden shimmer it adds and so decided to make some die cut roses and mulberry paper leaves for this challenge, to be treated to an application of it…


RebeccaDeeprose Vintage Challenge-1


The roses were die cut from whisper white card stock from Stampin’Up, then misted from afar and close up.  The even mist seemed too…predictable, so I added some random droplets, let it dry and then rolled them into shape.  I tried the same technique with die cut leaves, but couldn’t get the look I was after until I used mulberry paper which is much more absorbent.  It held so much more mist and allowed me to add a touch of soft green with a copic marker under the edges of the leaves…perfect!


RebeccaDeeprose VintageChallenge-2


I found a sheet of soft metallic gold card stock with a satin finish and used it to die cut the flourishes that sit under the flowers and as a mat for the top three layers of papers.  I cut into the top two layers after adhering them to the base pattern paper, then curled the middle layer under and rolled the top layer of printed vellum, to the top.  I couldn’t skip a touch of distressing with tiny tears and abrasions along with some inking…

I sprayed three rolled buds and tucked them into the V and added a sentiment at the top.  This sentiment does quintuple duty as a thank you, valentines, friendship, anniversary or engagement card.

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you’re moved to pull out those sprays, mists or paints to join in this vintage style challenge!


((hugs)) and Blessings,

    I love the curled papers and layers! The way you layered the flourishes is beautiful and I’m glad to hear about the spray you used. I haven’t found a gold that I like yet and this looks like the one! You chose a gorgeous place to stamp the beautiful sentiment! It’s all round gorgeous! TFS, Sharonxx

    Oh My Goodness!!!! This brims with shabby chic, vintage Rebecca! It’s really gorgeous Sweetie. The layering of those flourishes is brilliant and the tip on mulberry paper, well, I’m ordering some now! I’ve had the same problem getting the sprays to look the way I wanted! Really gorgeous and I keep going back for another look 🙂 Hugs, Amelia
