Were Going Vintage at Crafts and Me

Morning Peeps,

Brrrrr, where's the sun gone, lol?  Anyway I'm not complaining really, give's me a day off of walking and more time crafting.

Today the  Crafts and Me Challenge has been chosen by the very talented Angela and Angela would love to see Distressing/Vintage Style.  So this can be ripped papers, old photo's, however you interpret this theme.

I have used one of the Crafty Individuals Stamps from Crafts and Me.  Such a beautiful face:-

Corner Stamps, Film Strip and Stamp on accetate are all Tim Holtz
Corrugated card painted with acrylic white paint
Cogs are laserchip availabe from Make It Crafty and now Quixotic Paperie in the UK 
Captured in Vintage sentiment is a freebie from BizzyBecs 
Lace, Doily, Bakers Twine & flowers from stash

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Hi sweetie this is sooooo beautiful I love all the embellishments a girl after my own heart hun. I was gonna use this stamp she is just so pretty. The stamp I used I have to tell ya I went through 3 sheets of A4 photo quality card it did my head in lol. I used memento & I placed my card on top of some foam & then stamped my image I pressed down for about 30 secs then I left it to just sit there for a minute & then pressed down again & carefully peeled off. It took me a lot of goes & lost a lot of hair lol. I think its worse if you have too much ink on....well it was for me & I tried all my inks lol the memento worked the best for me. I wish you luck hunni lol.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx


A gorgeous vintage card - love the image and the beautiful embellishments.Thank you for joining us at MAWTT for the recycling challenge.
