Well, here's my version of our new challenge "Vintage" at Just Magnolia!
I started over about 3 times, trying to get the look I wanted. Boy is that distressing messy! I had bits of fluff paper all over me when I was done, then making the edges look distressed with the walnut, was that ever a mess! I have a new huge admiration for people who do this to their cards all the time. ha ha!
I was so happy to be able to use my new Magnolia Tag Doohickey which I got from Magnolia-licious. Now, my Wild Orchid flowers had to be colored in order to match. I used Vintage Photo spritzed on the large rose and then Aged Mahogany was painted onto white cherry blossoms. I had to paint the cherry blossoms because of the little yellow centers. I wanted them to stay yellow. There are pearls, pearls everywhere; in the centers of the small retro punch flowers, on the corner piece of lace, around the flowers, whew!!! My base paper that you really can't see is K & Co. Oh and yes, I distressed the doily too.
I hope you like my vintage card. Everyone who visits me knows that this is not my usual style. tee hee! It was fun for a change though!
Please be sure to go see what all the other girls on the Just Magnolia team did, they are all just such talented ladies and I would like to say a HUGE WELCOME!!!! to Kathy for joining our team. Love that girl's work!!!!
Thank you for stopping by!
