We are going Vintage at OSCC

Hello everybody

It is time for another challenge at  One Stop Card Crafts,  and we are going Vintage.  Now this is a style I am getting to love more and more, and I am sure that we are going to see some fabulous creations from all the entries.  Please also pop across to the challenge to see all the wonderful inspiration.

This week we are also sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts, where you will find lots of crafty deliciousness.

For my card this week I decided to go with a bridal theme, and have cut into some new papers from Pion, very pretty and delicately summery.  I have been looking at them for a while, and as most people know, if there is something you really love, it is quite hard to make that first cut.

My papers have been backed with a blue card, which tones really well.  The central panel is the reverse of the main paper,  The edges of the central panel have been lined with lace, and the photograph has been mounted in a Nestie frame.  All the edges have been edged with distres ink, and I have used stickles as well.  On the frame I have knocked the colour back a bit from the Snowflake paint from PaperArtsy.  All the flowers gave been sprayed with Irresdescent Gold Glimmer Mist, and I have removed the centres of the small ones and added pearl brads to all of them.  The lovely flower at the bottom from WOC, and they are bought by the metre, so there are lots to play with.
