Vintage Fashion!

Hello and I sure hope you all are having a great week! Later this month we will go to Portland, OR to visit our daughter and grandson. My not so much baby girl will have a birthday in February just after Valentine's Day and I decided to make her a fashionable tag using Artistic Outpost's "Vintage Fashion." Holly is very much into fashion and so I think she will enjoy this.
I first inked over the die cut tag with Frayed Burlap, laid Tim's Gothic stencil over it and applied DecoArt Crackle Paint and left to dry. Next I sprayed on Tattered Angels Simply Khaki glimmer spray for a nice little sheen, which also was applied to the hearts. There is also some time remaining to join in January's "Show Us Your AO Art" challenge, so come on and get inky with us!
The lovely Vintage Fashion lady and sentiments stamps were inked with first Coffee Archival and Tree Branch to tone done, shaded in Frayed Burlap after fussy cut and torn. Added a little pop of red hearts to finish.

Thank you for stopping by! We have been working quite hard to go through tons of papers/documents, magazines and books and after 17 years, you can imagine the collection that builds! Well I am proud to say that I was able to load up 6 good size boxes of good quality reading material to donate and we have been shredding about 35 lbs of paper matter. Lots of stuff to do when you get ready to move!!!

The background brings to mind a piece of textile or even vintage wallpaper, it is a gorgeous backdrop for the vintage female.

Gorgeous card for Holly, I am sure she will be over the moon with it. Just catching up with some of your posts and just seen you are moving. I can't believe you have gone and done it, well done and I am sure it will be the most amazing new venture for you both, but I will sure miss seeing you on my CA visits.
