We are going vintage at WhoopsiDaisy

Hey sweet crafters!

Thanks to all of you who entered last weeks springtime challenge. We had a lot of fabulous entries. It is so fun to hop around to your blogs and get so much inspiration. We in the DT are supposed to inspire you for your creations, but i really must say that you all inspire us just as much.

For this weeks creation i have used sheet #24, which you can find here. I looooove this image. She looks so divine with that amazing and flowing dress.

I have coloured her with my ProMarkers. For the dress i have used: Satin, Putty and Tan, and for the bows, Crimson in the dots and Dusky rose and Sunkissed pink for the rest. Her skin is coloured with: Vanilla, Blush and Oatmeal, with Pale Pink for the cheeks. For the flowers i used: Sunflower, Crimson, Leaf Green and Pine. And for the hair i used: Satin, Spice, Walnut and Terracotta.

Make sure you join us for the vintage challenge at WhoopsiDaisy. It is really not as difficult as it looks. Some good pointers for those of you that are a bit unfamiliar with vintage: Use earth colours and if you want some more colour with it you can use pastel colours. For an old look just distress your edges and ink them up with brown ink. For those of you that don`t own a distressing tool it works really nice with scissors. For embellishment, lace gives the perfeck look. otherwise you can embellish it as you like. To get some more pointers you can visit my good friend Johanna right here. She is a master at making vintage creations. Her blog is in swedish but she has a translation button on her left side.

These are the challenges i am entering:

Creative inspirations Paint - Inspired by Chocolate
Nordsalten Hobbyklubb - Utfordring #27 Blonder
Scrapperiket - Utfordring #24 Metall
Anything goes Challenge - Challenge #38 Pearls

Thanks for looking
