CCC#29 Weathered Wood Grunge/Take a Word: Vintage Challenge

Okay, so I didn't go with the weathered wood look here, but I did use the technique!  This is for the CCC#29 over at StudioL3 blog hosted by the wonderful Linda Ledbetter! And also for Take a Word Challenge Blog: Vintage  Started it last night and finished it up this a.m.  I really had no idea what I was going to do other than use the grunged techniqued keyhole as the main accent.  It is amazing what you can come up with when you start looking through your stash.  Didn't even know I had this picture of a lady on text paper---found in a stack of vintage papers by friend Sheryl had shared with me.  Worked perfect in the keyhole.  Got to use my new washers from Tim Holtz Idea-ology line.  Added the key from Lost and Found.  And, of course, that is more tissue tape from Tim Holtz as well.  Used sage acrylic paint and Tea Dye Distress ink for the technique.  Then used Shabby Shutters Distress Ink for the rest of the card.

Hi there,
I really like the techniques you used on your entry for the CCC challenge this week. I agree, it is AMAZING what we can find in our stashes!! Sometimes, I even like what I find! lol

This is beautiful! Did you use two different embossing folders? The one on the main card seems to have raised areas only in certain places... I might *need* one of those.

You did a spectacular job with the technique, Deanna! I love the keyhole with the mysterious lady inside, and the background and cool, ruffled tissue tape are lovely. The soft vintage colors are gorgeous, too!
