vintage pooh.

I was asked to create a baby shower card, to match the event's "vintage winnie the pooh theme."  I don't have any pooh stamps, so I had to think, think, think.

Oh, stuff and fluff.

sorry, just wanted to throw that one in :)



I searched online and found some vintage pooh images, printed them up on a sheet of cardstock, cropped them with a circle punch, and aged them with some distress inks.


I love the original winnie-the-pooh artwork.


I know you can't really see it in these pictures, but the kraft cardstock base is stamped with a newsprint background, in versamark ink.  I did a similar subtle stamping on the flag, and then stamped "baby shower" over-top in chocolate brown ink.

This was a fun card to make!  Now I've a "rumbly in my tumbly.  Time for something sweet."

See you tomorrow!

  7. I'm so glad you showed me how to get Pooh onto a card! I love this artwork too, and have not been willing to cut up any Beatrix Potter books! The card is beautifully done-just like all of your work! :-)
