Family Photo by Alison

Hello Stampers. I have a vintage hanging to share with you today.


Here's how I made it...

I stamped the Family Values image onto white card with black versafine ink, then clear embossed it. I coloured it using antique linen & vintage photo distress inks, then distressed the edge with a paper distresser & inked them with vintage photo ink.

For the background, I took a slightly larger piece of white card, stamped the chicken wire background with vintage photo DI, then used blending foam to give it a smudged look. Again, I distressed the edges & inked them with vintage photo.

For the base, I painted a ripped piece of corrugated packaging with black Studio gesso, then rubbed a little gold Viva inka gold around the edges.

I assembled my hanging as shown, using long fasteners to attach the background to the base. I then added some ruched vintage lace, a heart charm tied with coffee-dyed fabric, and a chain to hang my artwork.
