LRW #204 -- Vintage

Jayne's asking us to kick it ol' school this week over at Little Red Wagon

She wants to see some projects with a vintage feel.

I don't really do the classic vintage--you know, that shabby chic style vintage.  I've tried it, and it's just not me.  So instead, I went with the a worn-out, distressed vintage look.  The button is probably vintage--so that counts, right?.
 I made this for my nephew's 14th birthday (hence the stamped "14").
I heat embossed the woodgrain background with clear embossing powder, then distressed all the rest, what's that called again? Emboss resist technique?  I can never remember the technical terms for anything!

Any way, head on over to the LRW blog and check out what the rest of the DT cooked up before linking up your own VINTAGE project.

Thanks 4 your time!
