They always say it is good to step out of your comfort zone to become better at something. Well, I stepped out to do a vintage card for the PPA challenge ... and I like it! Below is the inspiration photo.
My inky fingers went to play and created this ...
Stamps: Bliss (sale-a-bration)
Paper: Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla
DSP: Elegant Soiree
Ink: Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze, Soft Suede
Accessories: sponge dauber, rhinestones, dimensionals, edge distresser, glue dots, finial press embossing folder
All products are Stampin' Up!
- The edges were sponged with Soft Suede to give it a vintage look. Ann, at The Stampin' Schach, is the Queen of vintage. Be sure to take a peek at her awesome blog.
- The butterflies were rock n' rolled. Think I'm on a butterfly kick? Three on my last card and what do you know, three on this card too.
- One of my favorite embellishments that Stampin' Up makes are the rhinestones and pearls. I absolutely love them!
I hope you will find some time to play along with us this week. I would love to see how you interpret vintage. I know I will make more cards with a vintage look ... it's fun and has an awesome look! I am pleased with the results of this card. Thanks for stopping by and I always enjoy reading what you have to say ... good, bad or indifferent.
Have a great day,
