Vintage Vibe

Howdy Folks!

How is your week going so far? What I want to know is: Where did January go?! Can someone tell 2015 to sssssllllooooww down, please? Thank you. ;)

Ok, friends, I'm here today to share my new project for Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges. The theme is vintage.  You can create a card, layout, canvas, etc. Now, I have a confession: I LOVE the vintage look, but I have a hard time achieving it.  I tried to channel the creative, vintage vibes of Lisa of A Mermaid's Crafts, but my card pales in comparison to her amazingbeautiful projects.

I lightly "distressed" the paper/cardstock by running a blade over the edges. And I added a bit of shine on the leaf vines using a gel pen.

The lighting in this picture isn't the best, so it's hard to tell that the ribbon was "distressed" using a distressing powder.
(Supplies: cardstock- Bazzil Basics; pattern paper- Karen Foster Design; stick pin; vintage sticker- Tim Holtz; ribbon; blade; gel pen; distress powder)

So what vintage-y craft will you create?  We'd love to see what you make, so link it up at Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges.  :D
Thank you kindly for stopping by!

Happy Crafting,
