Vintage at Phindy`s Place

Hi sweet friends!

The weeks are flying and i`m allmost finished with my vacation:-( But in one way i`m happy it`s over. I am really missing my craft room. My fingers really itch for making anything crafty, lol.

At Phindy`s Place this week we are going vintage. This is one of my fav styles. I looove anything vintage, so this is straight up my alley. So i hope you like my little creation.

The digi i have used for this is called Birdie and you can find it right here. I think this is so adorable. The girl with the waaay too big hat and the bird...think this has to be one of my favourite Phindy images, lol.

Behind the image i put a pice of corrugated cardboard paintet with gesso. I have inked the edges with distress ink "Vintage photo". It is not easy to make this type of work really stick to my card so when i use corrugated cardboard i have to use my gluegun for mounting all my embellies. It`s a bit messy but i prefer it that way, lol. The die is from Marianne Design.

The ProMarkers i used for this image are:

Coral, Sunkissed pink, Blush, Tan

Henna, Tan, Cinnamon, Putty, Satin

Peach, Soft peach, Pastel pink

Other colours:
Lipstick red, Sky blue, Terracotta, Walnut, Umber.

One day i was visiting an interior decorating store and i came across this home decor. It is a piece of a long string with pearls and metal embellies and i had my cards in mind when i bought it, lol. I allways think if i can use what i buy for my cards when i`m out shopping, lol.

The button is something i have had in my stash for quite a while and finally i found the perfect project for it.
