Crafts 4 Eternity - Vintage!

Thank Crunchie it's Friday! Time for another fab challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity. This week we want you to incorporate a vintage theme with this week's sketch.

I embraced the vintage feel this week & stepped out of my comfort zone. I used an image from Crafty Individuals.


I used Distress Inks to colour the background & ink the image & embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Pearl. The DPs are MME Holly Jolly. I distressed everything with my embossing tool & used Ranger Perfect Pearls & Liquid Pearl to further add to the vintage feel.

Not sure vintage is really my strong point, but I did enjoy getting my fingers dirty with this. Might just have overdone it a bit though!

Please pop over to the C4E blog for more fabulous inspiration from my lovely D-Teamies.

Hope everyone has a great weekend & is keeping safe & warm!

Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Looks vintage to me, Andie! Great embossing. It's a big image and I find it really hard to emboss something with lots of detail. Great shimmer to it too! Warmest wishes, Lesley
