Finally this week I have been able to enter a card in the 365 day challenge blog http://365cards.blogspot.com/ there have been some great ones this week, however I have just not had the time to craft for them.
I also want to enter this card in the allsorts challenge blog http://allsortschallenge.blogspot.com/
the theme there is vintage.
I decided to try and combine these challenges, as I look at both collage cards and vintage cards and think that they are just stunning, then I try it, and it doesn't ever really work for me, i need to conquer these looks!! i think it looks vintage but I am not sure that it is truly collage, but I have tried my best, in my head I was also going to try and use roses, ribbon, buttons, butterflies - to fit with other challenges but that didn't work out, but I have tried my best, but I think a little more practice is still in order!!
Anyway, the image is from "my craft studio - carousel of classics" I am not really into cd crafting but hubby bought me a few and I do sometimes find the images handy! I changed the colourway to make it more sepia.
The green paper is from "K&Co - Hannah collection" and the main background paper is from "Kanban" I have also used some green pearl cardstock to mat the image, and have used the same card with "cuttlebug - script" and sanded over it.
I have stamped the corners with a "le Blanche stamp" and also created the strip of music using the "K&Co" paper and a stamp from "Penny Black" and I have inked around all edges with "distress ink-shabby shutters"
The little tab is also from the "K&Co Hannah collection" and then finally a few pearls and a little stickles....
