As promised I'm back with my DT card for the Paper Crafting Journey challenge sponsored this fortnight by The Paper Shelter who are offering a $20 Gift certificate to the lucky winner. The theme is distress / vintage and I must admit it is definitely not my favourite. There are some crafters out there who can make the most amazing vintage style cards and I'm afraid I'm not one of them, but after all it is a "challenge" so nothing ventured nothing gained as they say and this is what I made.
We were given some fabulous sponsor images to work with and I decided to use the pre-coloured 'Spring Princess' printing it off twice so that I could decoupage the flowers and the girl. For the background I ripped a piece from a photocopy of an old document I had (from my family history research) and brushed both that and the base card with a 'Tattered Rose' colour distress ink pad. The dies I used are all Marianne Design Creatables LR0143, LR0145, LR0147 and LR0157 and the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment stamp was free with a magazine. All the rest - lace, ribbon, bow, pearls, pearl spray and flowers - is from my stash.
