Color Throwdown 140


I have been itching to do a vintage card, and when I saw Barbara’s colors for the CTD this week:

swatch 140

I knew this was the right palette!  I have been wistfully gazing at the Funkie Junkie, Cherry’s Jubilee and Simple Treasures for some inspiration…they all seem to have that lovely vintage style down pat.  So I pulled out some Crafty Secrets goodies I recently got and went to work:


I’m pretty happy with the results.  I don’t have any Blushing Bride ink, only Patterns designer paper, but this CS image had all the colors I needed!  I did color the little flowers around the edge with a Pink Pirouette marker, and it seems to match fairly well.  I dyed some felt with Baja Breeze ink to make my little leaves; the rest is just bits and bobs from my stash. 


All other stamped images are various PTI sets; the musical BG is from Cornish Heritage Farms.  Email me if you have questions! 


Thanks for visiting today!
