OWH Cruise Week fun: Vintage
I love making vintage style cards, so I was delighted when Paula asked me to put one together for this evening's challenge!
This is a pre-colored image you will find at Clearly Vintage, the sister site to another favorite of mine, Digital Two for Tuesday.
DP: "Victoria Gardens" Echo Park Paper Co.
""Lost & Found - Madison Avenue" My Mind's Eye
Sentiment: "Sentiments" (Set of 3) Stampabilities Item #889527
Stampin' Up BoHo Flower Punch
Fiskars Corner punch
Tim Holtz Distress Tool
Ranger Distress Ink Orange Marmalade
Pink half pearls
I really like this sentiment set (I believe I found it at Scrapbooks.com) because all 3 unmounted rubber stamps are just shy of 4 1/4" wide, great for A2 cards. Also, this one has a nice art deco look to it, perfect for vintage/shabby chic cards.
Love the SU Boho flower punch because you can make whatever tiny layered flowers you need to complement your card.
After studying the colors in the image, I went with the unexpected pink & orange (with a dark brown mat). The prints complement and don't overwhelm the image. Distressing and inking paper edges really add charm and an aged look. And it's fun!
Enjoy this challenge! Thanks for visiting.
