Hi there bloggers, I hope you're all having a great weekend.
This is the birthday card I made for my niece (the younger sister of the one that I made the fairy card for). She works in one of Glasgow's swankiest hair salons and loves all things fashion related. Every time I see her dressed for a night out she's dressed in a vintage dress so it had to be a vintage card, didn't it.
I couldn't find an image I liked so out came my trusty pencils and I drew this myself, scanned it and produced my own digi-stamp. I wanted something similar to the dress she wore last Christmas so this is what I came up with. It's coloured in with Promarkers.
I blended the edges of a bit of white card with some dark copper coloured ink to match the dress and distressed it with a pair of scissors, then used the ink again to get a darker edge and then mounted the image with some foam tabs.
I then used the same ink on the Cuttlebug swirls folder and ran it through the bug with another bit of white card. The brown card is from stock and I distressed the edges of this and the Cuttlebug card too. (Can you tell I was getting into this distressing malarkey?) I stuck some teeny bits of ribbon loops to the back of the image mount and stuck on some little pearls.
The sentiment is a from a freebie set from Caz , that Claire gave me the link for, also inked but not distressed.
The whole thing is mounted onto some cream coloured card stock.
