CCEE Stampers - Vintage


I think vintage is the hardest type card for me but that is what Kathy of CCEE Stampers  asked we do this week. I had won this stamp set by Crafty Individuals (the background and lady) a while back and thought it would be perfect. So, I colored her, gave her a glittery waist bow, cut her out, and popped her on some white wash paper.

My flower, doily, and sentiment were added and that completed my card.

Hope you'll hop over to CCEE and join us this week.

Recipe:
Stamp-Crafty Individuals
Paper- PTI vintage cream, SU chocolate chip, and unknown dp
Ink- Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Peeled Paint), Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Turquoise Stickles, ColorBok Victorian Parlour doily, Fabric Flower by Petaloo
