Hello and happy Monday!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and you are starting a great week. For me, this week will be very, very busy, but interesting (including a wedding!)...
I would like to show you a card I made for our challenge at Digi Makeover:
This week our challenge is VINTAGE. So grab a digistamp and make a vintage style project and join us this time!!!!!!!!
I looked in the huge collection of digis and found this cute little girl called Arelia to make my card (because she looks a little vintage to me). I colored it with Koh-i-noor aquarelable pencils and cut it with an oval die cut (Sizzix) and distressed the edge with a pink ink pad to give that old look to the image.
I used dp from My mind's eyes, and a Paper Passport (Provo Craft) pad. I used a florished embossing folder (Sizzix) for the background with some pastel yellow cardstock, for all the pieces I used pink cardstock to mat it and distressed all the border with the pink ink pad too to get the same, uniform look.
I used some embellishments that make the card look more vintage, lace, pink seam Binding ribbon and pearls, I wanted to have flowers too, but when I tried them, I didn´t like how it looks, so I left it without the flowers...
This was the biggest challenge in my whole year with this DT. I am not
into vintage, and think is really hard to make a card looking
vintage... hahaha.... I admire some crafters than can do so beautiful
creations with this style, but definitively it's not my style, but I did
my best. What do you think?
