It is the fourth and final week of this month's sketch challenge at House of Cards and the style this time is vintage/shabby. Now I know it is fine to change the orientation of a sketch from vertical to horizontal but I've gone way 'off piste' today and put mine on the skew so I hope that is also acceptable. Background is a piece of Tim Holtz Kraft Resist card, sponged with Distress ink - I added some cut and embossed cogs with the addition of a little ink and Treasure gold. The postcard was made using a stamp from Chocolate Baroque on a scrap of watercolour paper. The penny farthing was cut with a Memory Box die and popped onto a Sizzix (Stampin' Up) die shape. The tattered banner was from a Tim Holtz Sizzix strip die and two little metal charms were added to comply with details the sketch layout. I wonder what HOC will come up with for the September theme - always interesting to see how others interpret these suggestions.
