I have never made a vintage style card before but I don't think this is too bad for a first attempt. To begin with I sat there for about 30 minutes wondering what on earth i could use as I didn't really want any pattern on the background. In the end i ended up cutting up one of the cats food boxes and distressing the edges then inking it with Tim Holtz old photo distress ink. I did the same with a small piece of Kraft that I had left over from when I went to Stephs make and take last year.
I coloured the image using copics - I think I need to get a few more colours for this sort of card so if anyone has any recommendations of colour groups that work well for this sort of colour please could you let me know :)
The sentiment is actually a sticker that I had from an old sentiment set that has been in my craftbox for years, I knew it would come in handy at some point. And the string was bought from a £1 store.
I made the little roses myself using the remainder of the Kraft card which I distressed and then added some stickles glitter glue to the edges.
I am entering this card in to the following challenges;
