Vintage Week at the Beary Scrap

Hi! Today is my first day of Tuesday postings for the Beary Scrap! And I am getting to share one of my favorite styles of cards - Vintage! For you to understand how much I love vintage, you have to realize that before I was even 10 years old, I had an amazing collection of vintage clothes. I loved all of the gorgeous laces and handiwork - and I was absolutely over the moon for beaded purses and flapper dresses. So now, are you beginning to understand some of the influences in my work?

I used a stamp by Stampavie and papers by MME Laundry Line. (Can't you just see those papers being reminiscent of an old beaded evening gown?). After I colored my stamp with copics, I did the Cracked Glass technique over the top, to give a really aged look. I used Distress Ink over the top to get down into the cracks. Finally, to make it authentically vintage - I added a piece of antique lace and a mother of pearl button.

Thanks for looking!
