Vintage flower

There’s an exciting challenge over at Just Add Ink.. the theme?  Vintage!  Now, I’m not really into the whole vintage look.  What I love to do is add vintage elements to a more modern card, so this was a bit of a new challenge for me, and I can’t say I’m completely convinced that the card I came up with is “vintage,” but I’m happy with it!

Maybe I stayed overly simple. Could it use a lot more ink staining?  I like simple…

I used some Inkadinkado stamps for the background (using VersaMark ink), a Martha Stewart lace punch, some vintage book paper with my flower punch.. The button with twine adds a vintage feel (I hope), as does the edging I did using some distress ink.  The sentiment’s by Hero Arts.


About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.
