Vintage Vogue


Hello again my stampin friends!  Hope you are all enjoying this Sunday. 

Here, I was going for a vintage look, but I am not sure I was successful.  But in person it does look a lot better.  It actually took me 13 shots to get this look you see here.

The sketch and the colors were iinspired by the Stamping 411 sketch and color challenge this week.  Their colors were to use Marina Mist, Rich Razzleberry and More Mustard.  So I thought well lets see how this turns out.  The colors actually look very good together and looked a lot better before I tried to get the antique look to it.  But, the more I look at the card, the better I like it so maybe I did OK.  I actually sprayed the Silver Foil smooch spritz to antique it and then the vanilla shimmer to give it a little shimmer.  I sprayed all of this after the card was complete, so ribbon and all were spritzed.

Please let me know what you think!

Well aren't you just a little spritzer there. The outcome is lovely. I guess I need to get my Smooch out and play. Thanks for the inspiration. Your card is lovely.

Great job with both of the 411 challenges! You knocked them out of the park. Love the smooch....bet it's even sparklier in person!
