I've so wanted to have a go at the 'vintage' look for a while now and this is my first attempt. All you lovely peeps seem to pull this look off beautifully but as the title suggests I find the vintage thing a little harder to achieve. I must say, however, I am fairly pleased with the outcome and will definately be having another go. Well my first piccie shows the overall package of an easel card on top of a one drawer box and the presentation box I made for it to go in and my next piccie shows the card/box a little closer.
My last piccie at a different angle with the drawer open. All the edges have been distressed with my scissors and inked and then stickled. My little maggie was coloured with copics and the white areas of her dress have all been stickled as well and what with all the pearls and gems added my card is well and truly blinged up!
A quick low down on the stash - the papers are all Papermania matted on black cardstock. Little gold charm and pearls from The Works. Sentiments from a pack of diecuts I bought from Lakeland a couple of years ago. Flowers are a mixture from Wild Orchid Crafts and Hobbycraft, ribbon from my stash and my maggie was from Sir Stampalot.
Challenges I am entering this into are:-
Cupcake Craft - distressing
Sunday Sketch and Stamp - fabby sketch
Sir Stampalot challenge - bring on the bling!
Well folks gotta dash the kiddies and hubby are now sending daggers my way as I'm taking too long on the old comp and we promised them we would take them to their favourite play area! Hopefully catch up with you all later and wherever you are hope you're having a great day too.
