Create for Fun Vintage challenge

I am so late in posting this!  I clean forgot all about it – must be the fabulous weather lol.  This week the challenge on Create4Fun Challenge blog is Vintage.  And guess what, I have finally gotten round to inking up another stamp that was still in it’s packaging (still in the envelope it came in actually – how bad is that!!)

The papers are from the pack from Costco that my son got for me months ago – it’s full of this dark, vintagey papers and I love them even though they are so not my usual colours.

The gorgeous roses are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, 15mm roses, 40mm Tea roses25mm Tea Roses.  The lace is from my stash (have it this one for years and can’t remember where I picked it up from).  I gave it a vintagey treatment with some Vintage Photo distress ink.

The finding at the top of the image was a gold colour, I just painted it with Picket Fence Crackle pain and dabbed some Vintage Photo ink on to age it a bit more.  The sweet image is from Sugar Nellie.  I’m not sure if the sentiment is working but I was determined to start my Christmas cards lol.  I coloured the image with distress inks – Antique Linen and Dusty Concord for the dress, shoes and bow, Tattered rose for the skin and Frayed Burlap for her hair.
I’m off work this week (got lots of DT commissions to get through so not sure if I will be on much this week at all – I have scheduled some posts to tide me over whilst I get cracking on this work).  Have a great week everyone.
Thanks for stopping by,
