CYDA #23 - Vintage

Its our new challenge today over at Craft Your Days Away and it is one that I have enjoyed making.  Our lovely DT member Doreen has set our current challenge and for the next fortnight she has chosen:


We have our regular sponsor back for this challenge, Simon Says Stamp, and they are offering a prize of $10 to spend in their store for one lucky winner.  Pop over to the challenge blog for all the info.


I had a rummage through some of my stash and found some beautiful Anna Griffin papers that I had forgotten about, but then decided to use some papers from a forgotten Kay and Co pad called Isabellas papers.

The stamp is by Inkadinkado and I've stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa ink onto ivory linen card, to give it a bit of an aged distressed look.  I didn't want the image to look totally perfect on this one.  I've added just a touch of colour with pro markers. 

Now with this picture, I'm just having a play with the macro mode on my OH's new camera.  (I think I'm liking his new camera now!).  The butterly punch is by Tonic.  I've distressed the edges a little around the design papers, added a few paper roses and a little bit of cream cotton lace.  The sentiment stamp is from Hot of the Press.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - I used their sketch
I love pro markers - anything goes
Class Act Insider - vintage rubber stamp

Thanks for stopping by,
