My second post for today is for the Marianne Design Divas Challenge. I had this sweet image on my computer, not sure where it came from but there are a lot of sites offering free vintage images not subject to copyright.

I used Indigoblu paper for the background. Using cream coloured card I cut Petra's Bridge LR0276 as a frame and Vintage Corners LR0285.

I have a drawer full of mixed media products which I hardly ever use, so I am determined to try some new techniques. I have coloured with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then used Stampendous Aged Gold which I have not used before to give the die cuts a vintage look. It's very random but I quite like the effect.

I used some gold coloured card to cut the leaves with LR0156 and mulberry paper to cut the flowers with CR1203 which I coloured with Vintage Photo. The centres are the stamen from LR0142 with tiny pearls. I found a strip of gold lace flowers to add to the vintage look.

I am entering this in the following challenges: -
Marianne Design Divas Vintage
Marianne Design Kreadiva's Anything Goes
