A little bit of Vintage

Brenda our design team leader at Penny Black at Allsorts sent each team member a kit to make a vintage card. The kit included beautiful papers, flowers, ribbon and a clock face with hands and some hinges. I used an 8x8 kraft card, distressed the paper edges, cut my ribbon and lace to length, I searched out an old Penny Black stamp I have had for years and stamped my image twice, die cut two flourish shapes and decided on my layout. I coloured my image with aquamarkers and cut out and coloured my second image to layer on top. I coloured the three white flowers with a Sepia aqumarker to make them blend in with the card. I assembled my card and ruffled the ribbon across the lace. I cut the ends off the hinges and slid them just underneath the papers. I love the finished result.
Aquamarker colours  used :-
 royal purple, wisteria, straw yellow, flame red, gold ochre, spring green and celery. The shades are muted due to my image being stamped on cream card.
If you would like to see what the other girls made with their kit, take a look here:-
