The Family

Hi Everyone,
It's Barbara with my first post as an Art Impressions Design Team Member.I wanted to do something  with an old feel to it, for this post. So, I pulled out some things that I haven't used for a while. I' m sure you know exactly what I mean. I have a few faces of women and I've wanted to do something with them for a while.They remind me of women from days gone by and were perfect to use with a film strip. I pulled out a film strip die, cut out two film strips using a transparency sheet and colored them with alcohol inks, espresso and pitch black and I attached the 2 strips together to make a strip that has 3 frames. Next I  stamped on the center pieces of the frames the three images of those women.
Stamps and supplies I used:
G2660  - TC Mini Lady
F2520  -  Margaret
E2518  -  TC Helene Profile
E2549  - TC Mini Family
Espresso Dye Ink
Sizzix Film Strip Die
Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three
Stencil for the background swirls
Cream Cardstock

I added some background interest to the card using a stencil and attached the film strip to the card front. I also stamped the word family onto a portion of a tag that I cut using a die. Distressing the edges with sponges and a dark brown ink helps to add age to the card.
