Vintage, sort of......

I got the idea of these from a recent copy of the magazine Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercaft. Labels and pink and cream, and vintage style was what I took from them, and this is what I ended up with.

They all use a commercial base card in heavy cream, portrait and opening from the bottom. The card has a bit of texture. The labels are cut from SU Vanilla and the background paper is either the folio sheet by Making Memories - Ava Ric Rac Ledger, or some free Hunkydory papers from the latest edition of Creative Cardmaking, an English magazine. The lace and ribbon is from the stash and the flowers or basically Prima. The crocheted flower is from Kaiser. 

The pearl brad was coloured to match with a copic pen. The sentiment is from a set of sentiments from Lili of the Valley - and I used them in all four cards.  The inks used are a combination of Memento Close to Cocoa and Tim Holtz' distressed inks, swiped around various edges as well as an occasional swipe with pink sponges as well (colours varied). 

This image is a fairy from Lili of the Valley and it has been coloured with watercolour pencils (Derwent Inktense) and sprayed with gold mica spray - it is very shimmery.  She is holding a small star from AnnaBelle Stamps

The small flower stamped on the tag is from the SU set Silhouette Sentiments, embossed with clear EP -pearls added are from a pack I have with no name but they are a lovely dawn colour. 

Again I coloured a pearl brad with copics but left the pearl stick as it was. Love those miniature roses from Prima.
