Fashionable Stamping Challenges - Vintage Inspired

It's a brand new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge! This fortnight, we are making Vintage-inspired projects. For my card, I started with one of my "Go To" images from the Generation Redux plate by Artistic Outpost stamped in Sepia Versa Fine ink, distressed with Antique Linen ink, adhered with Kraft photo corners and matted in distressed black. I also stamped an Ephemeral plate image of a journal page also by Artistic Outpost in Antique Linen and also distressed with the same ink and matted it in distressed black. I stamped several additional images onto the distressed background paper from Generation Redux, added doilies that were also distressed and then added my matted images. To complete my card, I added die cut vines in Copper metallic paper, dotted with copper pearls, brown seam binding, a butterfly sticker by Tim Holtz, bronze silk leaves and a piece of vintage jewelery. Please check out FSC to see all the beautiful inspiration pieces by the Design Team and then let us see your own Vintage piece for a chance to win a wonderful set of stamps! Thanks for stopping by. Best, Yvonne

Yvonne you have captured the vintage feel perfectly, all the stamping, inking, matting and layering frames the beautiful image completely.
Just adorable.
