Days Gone By


I know I just posted a similar card but this stamp was perfect for the Days Gone By, Vintage style card for the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge and Colour Throwdown challenge using the combination of black, melon, crushed curry and kraft colours.
The image was coloured with my prisma pencils, added some glitter to the flowers, accented with gold smooch and added pearl baubles to the necklace. Daubed various colour inks to the cuttlebug embossed kraft base and around the image to give that old tattered look. Found 3 vintage metal ovals and attached brads to the centre for some interest. Rubbed antique linen ink to the white ribbon to give it an aged look.
