When we went out to eat brunch on Sunday, I was mesmerized by the gorgeous art printed on dictionary pages that they had adorning the bar. I've been thinking about creating with vintage dictionary pages ever since ... and when I saw the TEXT Challenge at CASology, I knew I had to pull one out.
I'm always on the lookout for vintage dictionaries at used book stores and estate sales ... especially if they're falling apart ... because then it feels appropriate to give them a second life.
I chose the page that had Cardinal because I knew I wanted to ink-up my new Framed Cardinal Stamp from STAMPlorations (because it has a texty background ... so it's a double-text-card). I colored my bird with Spectrum Noir markers ... I love how the text shows through the transparent hues.
CAS Colours & Sketches is the source of my layout ... and the sentiment is from STAMPlorations Noteworthy 2. And my new best friend my MISTI made sure I got perfect coverage when I stamped, which can be particularly tricky on vintage papers.
I'm also joining the SPRING Challenge at STAMPlorations.
