Vintage Love

Welcome to card #2.  I had so much fun making this one.  I love the vintage/shabby chic look.  I don't know why I don't do more like this.

I started this card with a 5" x 7" card base from Recollections in Ivory.  The back ground paper is a piece of printed vellum from World Win Papers.  I have had this, OK hoarding it, for about two years.  I love it.  But, I am trying to empty out my stash so that I can bring in some new product.  I used two different vintage papers from Hot Off the Press as accent pieces.  I crumpled them up, spread them out and inked them with DI Vintage Photo to distress them.  After printing off this beautiful Gibson Girl image, I added just a bit of color to her hair, eyes, lips and the roses.  I inked the entire image and heavy on the edges with DI Vintage Photo to age the card stock. I added a length of double layer, ruffled, ivory lace from Jo Ann's across the bottom portion of the card.  I then added the image.  On either side of the image I added a strip of flat back ivory pearls.  I used Fabri-Tac glue for the first time and although it takes a while to dry, it worked beautifully.  The three roses I bought at AC Moore and are made by Chelsey Home.  I found this LOVE sentiment in the pack of vintage papers from HOTP.  I love the way it turned out.  I hope y'all do too.

Thanks for peeking at my creation tonight.  God bless.
