Vintage Love


I have tried something a little different for me today...I always used to say I didn't really have a style and I quite liked that, but just recently I have found everything has been a bit samey....so this is my attempt at breaking the mould a little...

I Love the collage look..and oooo and aaaaa over everyone else's creations...I love the fact you can use loads of different images together and they just look right together...however it is a look that have never been able to pull of myself...so this is me attempting to give it another try.....

I am back on my scraps..all the red accents are "Basic Grey" paper... The main background paper is plain white card that I have stamped with "Hero Arts - Manuscript" and " Inkadinkado - Chandeliers" and the little watch detail is from a set that I bought from QVC forever ago!!

The main image is "Create a Scene - Regency" I have coloured the images in with copics.

The lace is "Doodlebug - boutique trim" and the flower has been created with a flower punch and the basic grey paper. finally a couple of pearls

I am not too sure of the results, but I think I like it??!!

This is my entry for:

Charisma cardz - I love you
C.R.A.F.T - Love
If the Shoe fits scrap it - Vintage
Sketchy Colours - Black/Red
Die Cut Dreams - Red/Black, with Love
Design Dollies - Vintagey Stuff (Thanks Leah for pointing out that this creation would fit the challenge!)
Paperplay - Love notes

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls
