Anything Goes #86 - Vintage

Good morning Blogger friends...

It's Tuesday again so that means it's time for another challenge over at Anything Goes, and this fortnight our theme is Vintage.

I've never made a card that you could strictly call Vintage before. Boy did I have fun making this. It certainly won't be the last, that's for sure.

I've kept the colour scheme very much in beiges and sepia tones. Everything has been distressed with Walnut Stain to create that aged feel and the paper has also had its edges distressed using a Tim Holtz distressing tool.

The image is from Moonlight Magic Free Images where you can download lots of vintage style images for free. It did seem odd making a card with an image that I didn't have to colour!

The image is mounted onto a Nestie Floral Oval die cut, the swirls were cut using DooHickey Heart swirl branch and the Vintage bird cage is from Poppystamps. The film strip is  from Tim Holtz.
Papers are Raspberry Road 'Moments in Time'

Here is a compilation showing a close up of some of the detail.

Hope that you can join us over at Anything Goes this fortnight. I'm looking forward to seeing and commenting on  your lovely creations.

If you're in need of some more craft stash why not pop over to The Craft Den and see what you can find.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Thanks for dropping by and any comments which you may leave.

Big Hugs,
Janine x
