I have a lot of cabinet card photos in my family history collection so having Tim create pockets we could use with new photos was a great idea! The current CCC3 challenge is to use a cabinet card in your art. Tim has 2 sizes; I chose the smaller one for my project.
Not only do I get a challenge project completed but I scrapbook a part of my life. The entry also allows me the chance to win some goodies from Tim & Mario (as chosen by the Curiosity Crew) and a $50 gift certificate from The Inspiration Emporium, this week's sponsor.
The grungebook page was painted with a base coat of Antique Linen Distress paint; distressed the edges and rubbed Gathered Twigs Distress Ink along them. Studio 490 Leaf Spray was stenciled in the two left corners; and a Studio 490 frill was stamped in Spun Sugar over the spray.
The decorative cardstock was trimmed to size, distressed the edges with the sanding block then added Tattered Rose and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks to the white edges. Stamped the date in Fern Leaf Archival Ink at the top; embossing paste the word at the bottom. Added a photo of the bowl (same as in the photo) and a stamped and embossed image of a spoon.
Aged the cabinet card, added the photo, faux Scrabble tiles and Remnant Rub. The bow is attached to a colored and distressed tag that tells the story behind the photo.
This picture was taken in the kitchen of my maternal grandparents' home in northwestern Illinois. I've eaten many a meal at that table..which is still in the family. The bowl is part of a set that they acquired when going to the movies back in the '30s and '40s. The flatware is Queen Bess Silver Plate. When my grandparents died I was given the dishes and flatware. The dishes only come out on special occasions because they are not dishwasher-safe. The flatware requires silver polish periodically but we use it every day. Thank you, grandpa and grandma, for giving me such wonderful, lasting memories!
