Welcome to another week on the Sweet Stampin’ Challenges. This weeks challenge is Vintage. For this week we have two lovely sponsors: Joanna Sheen wit a £10 voucher and Crafy Ribbons.
Oh I found this challenge really hard. I have no idea to get the softness that i associate with vintage cards. But after some brainstorming i came of with wrinkly and brown for my card.
I started out with stamping this music background from Hero Arts in Rich Cocoa. I then wrinkled the paper and distressed it with antique linen and vintage photo. I then tore the edges and the scraped them a bit. I wanted to keep the card clean due to the rich colors but it looked so empty i just needed to fill the space in someway so i dug out this flourish-die. The flourish stem is glued down but the leafs i put up a bit with gluedots.
