Card - Vintage Ladies + Freebies




A card I made today. I used the Outlines Faux Foldy Flowers v1 in black and printed on really cheap copy paper, I mean cheap.... and the paper was onion thin :) The flower felt so neat... fluffy & crispy when completed. I thought I'd try out my new Prismacolor pencil sets, Black Raspberry on the flower.... it goes on this really dark brown and the OMS pulls out the lovely reds when blending. The small petals, I used Ginger Root, and I think the leaves are Kelly Green. I outlined and pinstriped with coloured Sakura stardust pens. The background paper was in these 50 packs of 6"X6" patterned paper from the dollar store, yes, for a dollar :)

The ladies were downloaded from art-e-zine.co.uk
There are pages and pages of vintage images to download :)) I won't tell you which page I found these lovely ladies, I thought I'd give you something to do ;) If you haven't been there before, DO check it out.

Well, girls I thought I would have more goodies to play with but the day hit a few snags. I hope to get designs I wanted done and "out the door" tommorow, or Monday at the latest.

In the meantime, here are some freebies from my dusty folders. They are tea bag folded Foldy Flowers I made once during playtime. They don't look like much on paper but when folded and put together, I really LOVE them! I have a few medallions made but not yet on cards, maybe I'll make a sample up to show later tonight.

Gorgeous Tracey! Your flower and the way you have done it is perfect for the vintage picture. A budget card masquerading as an expensive one!
