Vintage Dream

Hello and thanks for popping by, today, it's the turn of IndigoBlu's Valerie to make her debut, if you missed Elsie, you can find her here.
For the card base, I've used Ranger Transparent Gloss Texture paste through a Flourish stencil on one side and on the other I used Bundled Sage, before colouring with Victorian Velvet, Bundle Sage and Tumbled Glass Distress inks. Valerie was shaded lightly with Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet DIs. The sentiment is from Crafty Individuals.  The rose was made with the Tattered Florals die.
Hope you're having a good week and not shivering in this chilly weather, here in the N.E. it feels more like November than 'Flaming June', the only good thing about it is I've tidied the craft stash, which wouldn't have got done if the sun was shining.............so, if it's miserable weather tomorrow I've a nice tidy desk to work on.
Avril xx

Shivering in the N E of Scotland but the up side is that I can stay indoors and craft, pity I didn't manage to create anything as pretty as this little lady tho!

Beautiful card .... I love how you've done the background, looks so elegant. I'm hoping the UK weather brightens up a little this next week because we're off to the Cotswolds. I'll see if I can bring some Manx sunshine across with me :) xx

I love this Avril. It's such a gorgeous stamp and it looks absolutely wonderful teamed up with my favourite Tim Holtz stencil. I really like the colours that you've used too and the little rose that co-ordinates with the colours in your background just finishes it off perfectly. Have a lovely weekend, Sandra x
