Tuesday Trigger Vintage Vagabond

    I was so sad last Sunday when I thought I had missed this Tuesday Trigger. It's a great picture. I had a lot of ideas but making buttons like the plates was my favorite. So, I was in luck when I found out this was a double week! So, here is the link to the challenge and the trigger photo.
    And here's my take on the trigger.
    My favorite parts of the card are the embossed buttons I made using the letter 'E' from an alphabet stamp  based on the plates and the hammered brads in the center. So, I wanted to make them the focal point of the card and made sure by cutting the rectangle from the background. I made the background with a crackle stamp from Impression Obsession and embossed it in black. I also edged the banner and filled in the background with Brushed Corduroy and Frayed Burlap inks. Finally, I wanted to make the card a bit softer so I added a pin and some jute twine on the edge of the banner.
    I hope you like it!


  1. Oh those buttons! And hand embellished to boot! Great take on the trigger!

  2. How impressive are those buttons?!? Your card is a great interpretation of the TT photo, Rachel :)
