The Stamp Man challenge - Vintage

Vintage is the current challenge at The Stamp Man and this time it is hosted by the stamp(wo)man herself, Jill. My first idea was to create an altered piece using an old photograph of my mother but in the end I decided to do something different.

I created another card using one of my new stampendous stamps, Flying Machines (R139-R). It made me think of Amelia Earhart, a famous female aviation pioneer and author. She was the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and wrote many books about flying experiences.

On the outside (left) of the card I used some 7 gypsies paper, black and white card stock. I stamped the stampendous background stamp Flying Machines on the white card stock with clear embossing powder and then covered it with Vintage Photo distress ink.

With the image of Amelia (from the internet) I created a sort of passport photo, including 2 eyelets. (This is the way the photo in the old Dutch passport used to be ~smile~). I stamped a compass image from a Tim Holtz Stamp set and added a gear and game spinner on top. On the inside (right) I used part of the 7 Gypsies paper, a piece of copier paper that I edged with vintage photo and the old instrument clocks from the Non-Sequitur set Across The Miles.

Materials I used are;
Stampendous cling - Flying Machines (CRR139-R)
Stampendous Embossing Powder - Clear
Non-Sequitur - Across The Miles (plate 43C)
