Scatty Jan For my vintage card this week I used the lovely Rose Budd collection, the image papers, postcard, feather and violin are all from the collection - Miss Millicent is also available as a clear stamp ....
Crafting Vicky I don't do a lot of Vintage... so for my card I decided to do a duo of things that I don't do a lot of... which is manly cards and vintage/retro. I decided to use the fabulous Work and play collection 2 with the office colored and the papers that go with it! I mean isn't it obvious that we would all like a day off?!? So to me this little guy looked perfect for the 50s and wanting to have a little holiday so his little paper could be saying that it's a day off :) How fabulous would that be?!?
Julie - I always struggle with this theme but thankfully I was able to use the gorgeous Rose Budd Full Download which is available in the Polkadoodles store HERE. The image is called Miss Charlotte and the beautiful papers are also from the download. I added Antique Linen distress ink around the edges before matting onto gold pearlescent card. The parasol, bow and ticket are all available on the the Rose Budd download, I edged the ticket with Antique Linen distress ink before matting onto some gold card and then onto the main card
Wendy - For this weeks vintage challenge, I didn't want to go all lacy and pretty, I wanted to embrace the idea of the old fashioned seaside and the Swimmer from Work & Play 4 fitted perfectly. It can now also as purchased an individual digi here. The backing paper is from the Rose Budd Collection.
Yvonne - Hello there! Well I decided to do a mans card for 'Vintage' and I chose to use 'Jeremiah' from the beautiful 'Rose Budd' Collection, which is available as a CDRom or Digi Download. The image, embellies and ephemera and papers are all from the same collection. I edged the papers with Distress Inks and used them on the frame also. I coloured Jeremiah with my Graph'It Markers. All I added was the burlap and the paper clay frame corners.
Patty I don't do a lot of Vintage... so this card was a really challenge for me. I decided to use the lovely Cherryblossom Lane Collection the cute rabbit friends and the flowery papers all from the collection. my card base is white and added a layer of aqua distressed the edges of all the papers and die cuts, use a piece of lovely and delicte white trim for the vintage look added the white ribbon and the purple drew drops to accent it. What do you think?
