Clean and Simple Vintage Fun

I'm back today with my last post for Pile it On Challenges.
I have enjoyed working with this wonderful group of ladies so much and this was such a tough decision to leave.

We have a fabulous challenge for you today...

"Vintage"

One of my faves of course.
I didn't have a lot of time to create this week, so I decided to go with more of a CAS style vintage.  The stamp set I received from Rogue Redhead Designs was just fabulous!  A big Thank You!
The ladies in this stamp collection reminded me of days gone by catalogue or pattern ads.
I wanted the image I chose to be the centre of the design.

Here's how it came out...


I've stamped her and the sentiments in black ink.  Once dried, I applied brown ink on the paper to give it an aged feeling.  I've chosen patterned papers that I felt represented eras gone by and that were quite feminine and complimented the gorgeous image.  I've added just a bit of color to the image, not coloring too perfectly as I wanted it to appear old.  All of the layered edges have been roughed up around the edges.  The final touch was the metal flower which so reminded me of a brooch from years ago when it was fashionable to be wearing them.

Our sponsor for the challenge this week is Rogue Redhead Designs!



They have some fabulous new stamps out for Christmas as well...be sure to stop by and check them out!

That's it for me today!
Hope you'll enjoy what's left of your weekend!
