Index card - Please wait for dial tone

Hey everyone,

I'm still enjoying ICAD - which is the index card a day challenge - and so I wanted to share another inspiration card with you. The theme for this week is mixed media collage. My card features some of the stamps from the latest release. 

I started with collaging some old torn papers in the background. Here I didn't take too much care about having nice straight edges. With my fingers, I added a little black and white paint on top. I just made sure that some of the vintage paper is still showing through. Next I stamped the rotary phone dial with the help of a stamping tool. Due to the slight texture on my card I wanted to stamp it multimple times. I also added the writings and scribbles collage stamp in different spots.

While looking at the new stamps, I thought the vintage man would make a nice focal point for the index card. I just didn't want to have the jars he's looking at, but cutting him without them was easy. I stamped him on some watercolor paper, colored him with watercolor, cut him out and inked the edges with a black marker. 

To finish the card, I glued the man onto the card as well as some found words - I have grown a certain addiction for using text fragments over the last weeks.

Rotary Phone Dial Grunge (20692)
Writing and Scribbles Collage (20695)
Vintage Man Examining Jars (20683)
