Grr. I am seeing so many lovely cards with a vintage look. I guess I need to find one item that I really like, make sure I have all the supplies, and case away. I am not at all happy with this result, but it will have to do for now. There are a couple of challenges that called me to try... I do not have the inks or the colors, so this is improvised. I used Twinkling H20 inks for the main image - the green is a mixture. I used a bit more water and wetter aqua brush than I usually do. The (Ocean Blue) bg and the cs for the die cut border are sponged with chalk. The die is cuttlebug; flowers are Petaloo, and the ribbon are Offray. The image is Memory Box
I would welcome comments on improving this - I was somewhat limited by a sketch.
