Vintage Butterfly


Hi all, I feel like I've been away for a month instead of a week lol and this is the first card I've made in a week too, that's definitely a record for me. I have to appologize for not getting to visit all your blogs this week but since I've got back from my little holiday I've been trying to catch up with everything at home. Anyway, its time for a new challenge on the One Stop Craft Challenge, this week it has been set by Shelley and she would like you to make something in a Vintage Style. This is quite different for me as everytime I try to make something Vintage it usually looks like I've spilt my coffee on my project lol but I'm quite happy with my Vintage Butterfly. I have coloured the image using distress inks, perfect for Vintage and I then used crystal laquer over the top and then scrumpled it up a bit when it was dry. Hope you can join us this week, I look forward to getting some Vintage tips from you all, don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog for some inspiration from the design team and of course to see what you can win. Enjoy your weekend. x

Simply Stunning Donna! I love how this turned out! The only thing I think of for vintage is old lace, lol! I like how you used the lacq. and crinkled it!
Glad you had a chance to craft again!
Enjoy your weekend...we're off traveling again but just for the holiday this time!
Blessings, Maria
