Hi all sorry for the title I just couldn't think of anything else this morning, lol. I have made this card for several challenges and I can honestly say that I love it, I spent quite awhile working on this one and I think at last I have got the look of the vintage era which I love so much.
The challenges I am entering this into are:
Anything Goes Challenge - Bingo Card (Distressing, Buttons, flowers, Pins, Lace and Ribbon, Pearls and Gems)
For my card I have used Bearlymine papers which I have distressed using my Tonic distressing tool. I stamped the image with TH Walnut Stain Distressing ink used a wet brush to do the hair and top of her dress, I used pencils and Sansodor for her flesh. I have used Pearls, wide cream lace, ribbon, hat pin, buttons, flowers, gold stickles, brown lace and a stamped postcard which I tore in half.
The picture above shows the card side ways
This picture above is a closer look at the lady which is a stamp I bought some years ago and she is from the Wendy Rhodes collection, the flowers that surround her are new and I got them from Crafty Emma's Store.
I have been inspired by so many of the vintage style cards that I see when visiting all my old and new friends in blogland but I must admit that my main inspiration has come from Linda aka The Funkie Junkie she is awesome at Shabby Chic and Vintage, thank you Linda.
See you soon, hugs to all.
