Are you ready for some Vintage?

Incy Wincy Challenge this week is a fabulous one
The Challenge is Vintage,
I don’t know about you but Men cards are always a struggle but when I saw the fabulous image that our lovely sponsor Stamping Dragon gave the DT to play with it just shouted Masculine card to me.
So I went with my 1st thought and got out some Vintage photo Distress ink and had a play.. I coloured parts of the image so it would end up darker over all when I was finished! soooo I then Distressed the whole thing, splattering with water and drying it and then re adding some more ink, I then stamped the Lauderdale Hear arts stamp to create some backing paper, I used a cuttlebug folder called diamond plate and also distressed some paper from the times and seasons Echo park paper pad, I got carried away and also distressed the cream ruffled ribbon, Added the cute little recycled safety pin to the image and added some magic mesh, a sentiment and some faux stitching.IMG_4628 (800x739)

    2. Hi Samantha
      Absolutely fantastic card. I am starting to fall in love with the distress inks. I have only 2 at the moment but it looks like I may expand. I am also loving those magic mash corners.
