TOMIC 26 - Vintage and lace

Hi everyone, I hope you had a good weekend! It's the start of a new challenge on TOMIC today and this week our theme is 'Vintage and Lace' with this definition of vintage:

"The vintage style is very popular, and it is simply to make your card or
project look old. You can often find distressed & inked edges, laces, roses,
notepapers ect. on a vintage project."

I've used ice Tilda again for this card, I think she's very sweet and this time I've coloured her with distress inks and used the snowflakes from the Sweet Christmas collection in the background. I dyed my white lace with glimmer spray and glued it around the image panel for a frame and the DooHickey die cut snowflake and punched snowflake were also coloured with glimmer spray as was the seam binding ribbon. The card was cut using a GoKreate frame die and I've used gorgeous Bo Bunny Christmas paper to cover it, it's very sparkly with glitter snowflakes. To finish off I added gems, a little rusty bell, pearl pen dots and everything was edged with vintage photo distress ink.

I hope you can join us in the the challenge this week, as always there's a gorgeous prize to be won from Magnolia and lots of inspiration from my DT friends.

Enjoy your day :)

I just returned to your blog to have one more look at the card in your post below, and then this beautiful creation caught my eye! I absolutely love the colours you've chosen. The combination is outstanding, and I just adore how you've picked up the colours from the image on the seam binding, totally brilliant.
I will definitely put this into my inspiration-folder, it's gorgeous from tip to toe :)

Hi there Chris, Beautiful vintage Tilda, I love your gorgeous style, colouring always rich and deep:0) Your calendar project was stunning each and every page a delight. I'm so glad Isabelle and Sandy chose such a rewarding project, although at first I was a little daunted I have to admit. LOL Keep well and don't work too hard, Hugs Gay xxx
