It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC64)! It is the end of the month so we have a challenge hostess! This week Karen Wallace is our host! Karen is challenging us to vintage styled cards! Everyone sort of has in their own minds what vintage means to them, so without giving you any direction, just create a card that defines a vintage style to you! We would love to see what you create! Also, just wanted to remind everyone that while each FTTC challenge has a weekly winner, we also draw a monthly winner from all of the FTTC for that month. So, if there was a challenge in April you still would like to participate in, there is still a chance to win! You can play as often as you like! Check out FTTC61, FTTC62, and FTTC63! The weekly and monthly winners will be announced next week!
I chose to use one of the newest Flourishes releases, Around the Arbor for my card. Nothing says "vintage" to me more than aged lace, ribbon, pink, and roses so that's what I went with. I stamped the image on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS. Then I cut/embossed with a Classic Rectangle Nestabilities die, stitched it to Kiwi Kiss and Basic Black card stock, and sponged it with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I think the mechanics of the card are pretty self explanatory, so I won't go into all the details. But if you have a question, don't hesitate to shoot me an email and I'll do my best to answer.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please check out my other team mates and see what their take on "vintage" is. I'm thinking that whatever it is, it's going to be awesome :)
