I intended to create a masculine card when I first stamped the 3 men for the faux photo. It just flowed into a vintage mini album.
The cover is black card stock. I scored it to fold and look like an old scrap book. I tied the covers and pages together with old string.
The photo image is stamped on glossy white card stock and distressed with Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Black Soot. I used Eclipse mask strips on the edge while I added color to it. After I removed the mask strips, I added some ink to tone down the stark white. My DH asked me who was in the photo when he saw it!
I stamped "Le Ballon" and "1899" to create a faux ticket. I added a stamped piece of mica at the top of the "photo". I wrote the date below the photo with Ranger white gel pen and rubbed it for a worn look.
I'm especially please with the "medallion" that I created. I glued a piece of gold craft foil to light chipboard. Then I cut it out and embossed it with a Spellbinders circle die. I used some metal alphabet stamps to emboss the letters and date. I added color with Copic markers dabbed with my finger before it dried and finished with black StazOn.
Here's the first 2 inside pages. All stamps are from Paris Expo.
