We've had a seminarian doing an internship at our church for the last 6 months. Her term is up and its time for her to move on to her next assignment.
This is a second career for her and she is coming to the end of her time as a student. Life has made her very wise - and I will miss her insight very much.
I wanted to make a card for her - something everyone she worked with at the Church could could sign. A little remembrance of her time here.
I decided to try to create a vintage feel (so here is the hybrid part) - I look a plain colored photo of the church and "photoshopped" it to a sepia tone. I then aged it a little more with Vintage Photo distress ink. What do you think (LOL)?
Here are some photos of the inside pages. I sewed together two cards to make them. The cardstock has bits of flower petals embedded in it.
Then I covered the whole "book" with some patterned paper from TAC.
I stamped images around the edges of the pages in burnt umber Palette and colored them lightly with prismacolor pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits. I just wanted to give the pages a little color, but still leave lots of room for people's messages.
Hope she likes it!
As for stamps - yikes! I pulled out every nature stamp I owned I think! I know there are some from TAC, Lizzie Anne, Serendipity, Impression Obsession, Stamp Camp, Biblical Impressions.... (have I mentioned I have a lot of stamps!?)
If there is an image here you want to know about just leave a comment and I'll find it for you.
