Papaya Collage

I am slowly getting into vintage art work.  I love it and admire the works of others but I have not had the confidence to dabble.  For my catalogue launch 2012 I wanted to touch on the art of Vintage and this is what we did; again inspired from fellow demonstrators works of art.

Colours used include Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Primrose Petals, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive

This card is also a sympathy card for a very dear friend of mine whose Dad passed away. I hope he and his family like it.

The frame was lifted using SU Dimensionals as were the roses and greeting.
I then ventured a little further adding frames and an embossed background.  The frame is cut out and lifted over the Square Lattice 119976 embossed background - remember to stamp your images before embossing with your big shot.

Twine is such a purrrfect touch to brown buttons. Love it.
I have to confess a story about these cards.  As I was adding the finishing touches of gold shimmer spritz to the cards, my husband was over looking with our son in his arms.  My son was drinking a cup of rice milk...can you see where this story is going?  yes the drink was dropped but Daddy tried to catch it and instead of catching it...well lets say there was a lot of rice milk EVERY WHERE including all over BOTH cards.  We dabbed and dabbed them, colours ran, colours faded, but I was too tired to remake them.  Can you tell! or did it add a great vintage effect LOL

Thank you for stopping by, if you have not tried vintage before, please do and stay posted for more to come or search for vintage and have a look at what I have created under the inspiration of others.
Craft the day away.....

  1. I think you have the vintage feel happening nicely.
    And I am sure little Benny Boy was only adding his personal touch, it worked well.
