Soft Shades of Vintage

Good morning folks, hope all you lucky peeps in UK are enjoying your Bank Holiday and the weather is being kind to you. We are on Red Alert as the temperatures here are sizzling, much too hot for me but hopefully won´t have to suffer it for much longer ... watch this space!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Die Cut Dreams and this week we would like to see

Soft shades of Vintage


Now this is something I never do and I was completely lost so decided to go back to decoupage which was my first love in crafting. She is a beauty IRL, 7 layers deep and will be popped in the post tomorrow to my friend who got me started crafting.





Challenges:


Bunny Zoe´s - Vintage
Creatalicious - Vintage

Dutch Dare Card - Vintage Summer

Tamiko´s - 3d

Another stunning card Nicola - the combination of soft shades with the vintage theme works so well. I too started out card-making with decoupage several years ago - with Flower Fairies, which were all the rage then. There were so many different techniques used on cards, which you don't see any more -such a shame really.
(From your Post I am wondering if you are moving back to the UK ....???)
