Shabby and Vintage at Crafts and Me

Hiya Peeps,

I have a chap who likes to buy all his family special handmade Christmas Cards and always chooses images that aren't christmasy and I have to do my magic on them to make them look like a christmas card.  He wanted purples and black and an Art Deco image, so this is what I came up with.


The challenge if you haven't guess at Crafts and Me this week is "Shabby/Vintage" and the Bride/Flapper Art Deco image fitted beautiful.  Isn't she gorgeous. And if you haven't seen there is a new europe/international postage rate of £3.45, so you can shop until your heart is content.

I have of course coloured my image with copics and have added lots of texture in the form of snowtex and crackle paint on the chipboard snowflakes.



I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-
Bearly Mine - My favourite things (Copics, distressing, snowtex, flowers, lace)
Oldie but a goodie - stamp older than 6 months and snowflakes
