Can't believe another 2 weeks has whizzed by and here we are again on Monday with the next challenge at Kaboodle Doodles. This week the challenge is "Make it Vintage". The DT were given images by this week's sponsor: stamp-n-doodle. I hope that you will be able to play along. Here is my DT card:-
I printed "The Courier" image onto some brown kraft paper and to make it look more vintage I crumpled it up, distressed the edges with my craft knife and distress inks, ripped into it and then stapled it back together. I then added some gorgeous black lace and stictching. The flower was made from the scrap of paper that I had left over which I gave the same treatment too before I added the metal flower charm and the birthday sentiment. Oh I then added pearls at the end to finish it off! I wasn't sure if I had taken the "vintage" look too far - but I'm pleased with how it turned out and something completely different to my "usual" style!
Thought I would also enter this card at simon says stamp and show their theme is "Something Shabby"
Just had to make a mention to my two lovely crafty friends Shirley and Viv who both made me gorgeous birthday cards - very much appreciated and I loved both your designs.
Had a lovely day yesterday out at Papercraft show in Bury st Edmunds - what at way to spend your birthday had a great time spending away...... Started to get cold like symptoms in the car as I drove home and by the time I got home I was feeling pretty rubbish so I just sat in front of TV for rest of afternoon and early evening had my dinner and was in bed at 8.30pm! I'm taking it easy today - think this cold will be with me for the week boo hoo.
Still at least I've got my crafty goodies that I bought yesterday to play with and tomorrow I will let you know what hubby got me for my birthday....
Skipper and craft stash!
