Romantic vintage

Happy Thursday everyone!  Here I am with more of my Quixotic Paperie faves with a style that is not my usual - vintage!  And I'm not sure if it's vintage enough because I don't do lots of embellishing!



Isn't this lady beautiful?  And a pleasure to colour in.  She is Make It Crafty Elizabeth J and I matched her with papers from the BasicGrey Curio.  I embellished with laser cut dies Make It Crafty Fancy Ribbon Sliders and Make It Crafty Butterfly Leaves finished with 4mm flat backed pearls.  For the ribbon, I got some seam binding and inked it with Tim Holts Distress Stains in Forest Moss, Vintage Photo and Wild Honey that I also inked up all the edges with along with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.  And that's it!




That's it from me this week and just lastly to show you other items on my shopping list that I'm starting to save up for are...
