Hello, and welcome!
I'm sorry to have been MIA this week........it's not been a good one, but I'm not going to bore you with the details.......
The challenge at
this week is to create something with a touch of
VINTAGE......could be a card, a wallhanging, a gift box....anything that takes your fancy, but it should have a Vintage feel to it.
Our sponsor this week is the wonderful
and Linnie is offering our randomly drawn winner 2 sheets of her lovely images.......that's 8 pretties to play with!
I really do love the look of anything vintage, but don't feel particularly comfortable tryin' to create something.....but here goes.......
I used this pretty little girl with her dolly's pram......and you can see the other images that come on this sheet if you visit the rest of the Design Team ..........
The vintage look seems to be all about muted colours so that's what I've used.....Promarkers and a bit of water colour pencilling ........
I used a little chalk to outline the frame.
A doll's pram was something I never had, as a little girl, but always wanted......I did have a Patsy doll which came with a little terry nappy, a bottle, and a cake of soap that smelled divine! My brother set the nappy alight and burnt his foot, tryin' to stamp out the fire (served him right!), and my sister fed the bar of soap to our dog.....won't go into what came out of the dog for the next 3 days....hahaaaa!
I used some papers from a lovely freebie pack that came with a magazine.......punched a couple of borders to pretty 'em up.......the layer directly behind the image is a K&Co. journalling strip........
I wish I'd used cream lace, instead of the brown, on this very sweet heart die cut.....it would have shown up better.....sigh....The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. I used a little deep pink chalk on the heart (it's cut from kraft)....added a teeny bit of string, and the ikkle flat-backed brown heart.........
The lace is crocheted cotton.....I love the soft cream colour.....and the flowers are Magnolia Doo-Hickeys with a flat-backed pearl in the centre........
I used a piece of the same pretty paper to layer up the inside of the card.
I'm hopin' this passes for Vintage.....heehee!
