TOMIC 26 - Vintage and Lace


Hi everyone, I hope you had a good weekend! It's the start of a new challenge on TOMIC today and this week our theme is 'Vintage and Lace' with this definition of vintage:

"The vintage style is very popular, and it is simply to make your card or
project look old. You can often find distressed & inked edges, laces, roses,
notepapers ect. on a vintage project."

I've used ice Tilda again for this card, I think she's very sweet and this time I've coloured her with distress inks and used the snowflakes from the Sweet Christmas collection in the background. I dyed my white lace with glimmer spray and glued it around the image panel for a frame and the DooHickey die cut snowflake and punched snowflake were also coloured with glimmer spray as was the seam binding ribbon. The card was cut using a GoKreate frame die and I've used gorgeous Bo Bunny Christmas paper to cover it, it's very sparkly with glitter snowflakes. To finish off I added gems, a little rusty bell, pearl pen dots and everything was edged with vintage photo distress ink.

I hope you can join us in the the challenge this week, as always there's a gorgeous prize to be won from Magnolia and lots of inspiration from my DT friends.

Enjoy your day :)
