Vintage cute - Karen

Hope you had a lovely weekend :)
A little bit of vintage, a little touch of cute and you get? A vintage cute week.... 
A bit of a struggle for some of our DT members who don't "do" cute at all, but then it's nice to challenge them a bit, isn't it? 
Starting with Karen... with a not only a Vintage cute project, but one for a little boy too. Vintage and cute is rarely associated with boys, but it works really good on this one, what do you think? 

For my project this week I have recycled a 10x10cm beer mat.  
I painted it first with PaperArtsy Fresco paint in Chocolate Pudding, added the PaperArtsy Crackle Glaze then Snowflake paint on top, drying well between layers.  Then I rubbed some Distress Ink in Chipped Sapphire over the top to add 'depth'.  The images were stamped in Memento Black and coloured with Copics.  They were then clear embossed before cutting out.  The wording was stamped and embossed straight onto my base.  The images were then glued in place.  
I punched two holes at the top and tied red string for a hanger.

Karen used
Crafters Companion S.W.A.L.K stamp range -'Slugs and Snails'
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints - Chocolate Pudding, Snowflake and Crackle Glaze
Copic Ciao Pens - 100, YG100, B45, R46, E35, E37, E08 and E00
Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black
