Timeless Friends

Hi there 🙂 I was delighted to be invited to be a Guest Designer over at Incy Wincy Designs. Their theme this time is Vintage or Steampunk…among my favorite themes!! The generous sponsor is The Paper Shelter, offering 3 images to the lucky winner. I used So Chic, and went with the vintage theme. I colored her up with my Copics, following the color palette of my papers.

After fussy cutting the image out, I glued it onto a piece of black CS that I’d lightly stamped a script pattern onto with some gold ink. The rest of the papers i used came from a paper pad called Steampunk Botanica. I distressed all the layers, before assembling the card. For the middle band, l placed a black die cut border over a piece of vintage lace. The lace piece is actually the edging off of a very old pillowcase!

After I finished assembling everything, I added a fluffy bow, tied with the fabulous crinkle ribbon from DL Art, and a bouquet of die cut flowers and feathers. Vintage works need pearls somewhere, so I added some to the flower centres and around the image to finish off. I’d like to thank Karen and the team at Incy Wincy for inviting me to join them, and hope to see you join us for this challenge!
