V is for Vintage

http://www.abc-challenge.blogspot.com has a V for Vintage challenge.. I am not one that normally does vintage..so please be nice!! LOL!! 🙂 *Grin*.. I did actually have fun doing this challenge tho! I think it has a nice vintage feel to it! Ok so details on my card.. here goes! I started with a kraft coloured card base, then went in search of vintage papers! (I have more paper than I do anything else in my room…lol so there was bound to be a few sheets of something vintage!) I came across DCWV new Mariposa stack and thought these butterflies appeared quite vintage. So I cut a piece (eeks, I hate cutting into a new paper pack and using it! Dont you? 😉 ) to fit almost entirely over my card front, leaving about half a centimeter of kraft poking thru. Then I found a scrap of turquoise that matched some of the butterflies, edged it with my martha stewart scalloped punch, and adhered it to my card. I then added some “vintage” (thrift store) lace in a kraft type colour. Then I had a gorgeous glittery prima in a rich orange, and a pretty brown flower gem to accent the card. Now I didn’t know I even had this butterfly stamp til I was rooting thru my drawers trying to find a different butterfly, but she is sure perfect. I coloured her with copics, and accented with gold stickles to go with the paper’s gold glitter accents. Then I used a stampin up punch, and short and sweet, and adhered those to my card as well! It looks vintage to me! Let me know if I can attempt this again, as I’m not sure if it’s good or bad! 🙂 Thanks for the feedback, it means a lot to me as a crafter and a person!
