Paper Players 296 Vintage Robin


Happy Sunday, everyone!  It's time for another Paper Players  challenge, and today Laurie is our hostess with a pretty little sketch:


I haven't done anything vintage for a while, and I just got this beautiful robin image from Artistic Outpost (Birds of a Feather), so I went on a search for some vintage-style papers and came up with this:


 I didn't really have any plain cardstock that complemented these beautiful papers, so I stamped my robin on some Naturals Ivory cardstock in Mint Macaron, added a little shading to the bird with Always Artichoke, then sponged everything with Blushing Bride to match the little lattice design on the paper.    I added a scallop in Always Artichoke, some wonky stitching:


a shabby seam binding bow:


and a Paper Pumpkin sentiment diecut with a Bitty Banners die:


I just love this sketch, there are so many possibilities!  I hope you'll play along too.  Here's what the DT came up with:

Softball time!

This is really beautiful, LeAnne! I aspire to do more work with a vintage or collage feel, but haven't yet had too much success - or the time to try really!! : ) xo Crystal
