Vintage Lady.....


My card this morning is to enter in Joan's Gardens Challenge #17.  The challenge called for:

Do a Vintage Card.....
Stamp a Background.....
Use Olive and Tan and any accent color......
Use some kind of feathers.....you might have to kill a chicken.....These are Joan's words not mine!

I can not remember where this vintage image came from...somewhere out there on the Internet.   I printed her on watercolor paper and used Ranger Distress inks to add some color to the edges of the card stock.  I stamped a piece of watercolor paper using a Heartfelt Creations background stamp...HCPC 3323 Large Elegant Word Background PreCut Set.  I then distressed the edges with a distressing tool and used distress inks on the edges of this layer.  I stamped and cut out the bottom piece using JustRite Classic Lace Edges Two and Spellbinders Classic Edges Two.  I used distress inks on this also; although it doesn't really show because of that big old bow.  I sort of got carried away, but I think it will be OK.   I added two tiny feathers to the hat and glued them down.   Everything is layered onto a dark green card stock.  My finished card size is 5 X 7.

That's it for me this morning.  I'm off to get a cup of coffee and think about my to-do list!  Have a great day and remember to "Breathe"!

Beautiful, vintage card, Glenda, love the subdued colors, great images as well! I don't know about killing a chicken, but the birds are always leaving behind a feather or two. Have a beautiful day crafting!

I would have never thought to print it on watercolor paper and distress the area around her. This is gorgeous. Love vintage.
