Vintage Style!


I do love a touch of vintage and its something I dont do often so I thought I'd have another go. The stamp is Penny Black and have coloured with Distress Inks. I found a load of HOTP Ephemera Pads so thought the camera would look good on this card. Have distressed both the papers and edged with chalk ink pads. Mix of flowers from stash, butterflies and leaves are both punches.



And here are a few challenges my card fits;

Penny Black - Lets Get Punchy
Allsorts - Animals
Cutie Sunday - Freestyle
Flutterby Wednesday - Open Theme
Incy Wincy Designs - Anything Goes
Tellens Place - Butterflies/Dragonflies
A Spoonful of Sugar - Furry Friends

Thats it from me today, back soon
