Over at the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog this week, the challenge was to make a Vintage card using Magnolia images (of course) Well, since I only recently purchased a few Magnolia's I was stumped as to how to use either of them for this challenge, and I KNEW I wanted to participate in the challenge because I really like the vintage look. As I thought about it over the last couple of days - knowing the deadline to enter was getting close, the design began to come together. I knew that I wanted to use my Baja Breeze DP from Stampin' Up! (now retired - so sad!) as I think it just has that vintage feel to it. I finally decided to use my Beach Tilda - it was her or Picnic Tilda - but I didn't want to use the bathing ring with her so I had to think of SOMETHING for her to 'sit' on. I decided that the nestibilities die would be wonderful for that. I was going to use some crochet lace until I remembered that I had this piece of chocolate chip satin ribbon and it worked beautifully with the design that was coming together. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the 'lace paper' and added the prima flowers to the ribbon for the final touch. Tilda is colored with prismacolor pencils in colors that coordinate with the paper.I distressed the edges of the bg cardstock and sponged with chocolate chip. I really like the way this turned out and think it looks very vintage - what do you think?
Thanks for stopping by the spa today - I hope you have enjoyed your visit and do come back soon.
