Vintage Card by Joan


Click picture to enlarge for a better view.
I have always been crazy about vintage and I believe it is one of my favorite kind of cards.
This card was so fun to make.  First of all I used a Spellbinder die to cut out the oval from Water Colored Paper.   I stamped Vintage Photo and Moss Green Ink pads onto my craft mat and spritz the ink with water and swirled my paper around in the wet ink until I achieved the color I wanted.  I colored Liquidtex with the same color of reinkers and applied it over a Crafters Workshop Art Is Template.  After it dried, I sanded it down until fairly flat and then using my blending tool, went over it with Vintage Photo Ink.  This achieved the look I wanted.
The flower was made from Crepe Paper.  Can you tell I love using it for my flowers. I don't have them perfected yet, but I am working on it. 
I thought the Graphic 45 polka dot paper was perfect for my background.  I also found the lace in my stash (by Webster Pages) and I loved it with the card.  I cut pieces to use for the corners and that finished off the card.

Very beautiful card. After looking at what you used, the Marianne decorative elegance might me something that I might need for my future retirement package.
