Vintage love

Hi there and welcome to a new week. This week is another one filled with meetings and other "fun" stuff but I get by. For a change feeling quite all right but tired. It might come with the time of the year or and that tiredness is a part of at least to of my illnesses. Just trying to live with it, and I will learn, some day. :)

This week we have a new challenge up for you all over at the Crafty Card Makers. With Valentine's day coming we thought it was nice to have some "vintage love" as our theme. How fun is that? I didn't thought that I would be able to cope with this challenge as it is not my style, but hey! I might change my mind. I love it when I get challenged and this really was. I had last week planed for making up some card for coming challenges but my youngest got sick again, so everything ended up being made in the last minute. At least all the cards and creations for this week is made.

Most of the time I colour my images with my dear markers from Letraset, but this time I switched over to my distress inks. I normally use them to colour my Magnolias, at least every now and then. It was a long time since last so it was fun. I have kind of drowned the card in decorations and embellishments, just because it was fun. Maybe the card is more vintage/shabby chick than vintage, I don't know. But this is how I interpreted the theme. At least the image is vintage. LoL Flowers that are distressed with vintage photo and some heavy gesso, pearl string, glass stamen, chees cloth, vail cloth, metal corner that I coloured white with gesso. You name it and you'll find it on this card. 
Sponsors then. This week we are suppored by the lovely people over at DI'S DIGI DOWNLOADS  and also by HOBBY ART. Check the challenge blog for more details. 

Well, that should be it for today. Hope to see you spreading some love and come and join us over at the Crafty Card Makers challenge blog.

Love n hugs
