Vintage photo

I decided to have a go at a vintage theme and in particular I had this ideas of doing a vintage photo style card.  I picked one of my favourite images from All Dressed Up - Mirror Mirror and coloured her in browns with ProMarkers.  Then mulled it over for a long, long, long, long time.  I actually ended up doing another vintage style card in the meantime and was happy with that so then ploughed ahead with this one.

She's cut out with a Spellbinders Die and then treated with some Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink.

Design papers are from Lïli of the Valley and Prima Marketing (Almanac).

I've added a strip of Tim Holz film I got from Live and Love Crafts to fit in with the vintage picture theme.

Vintage theme coloured brown/beige roses and leaves are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The final touch are some brown self adhesive gems.

I'm really happy with the way this one came out - as always it was a bit of an experiment, this was the first time using a Tim Holtz distress tool on an image!
