Fussy & Fancy Challenge #87 ... Vintage

Today's Blog post is about Fussy & Fancy's Challenge #87 ....subject ....Vintage. Problem was I had so many ideas racing round my head I couldn't decide where to start. Several attempts ended up in the bin but I finally settled on this one. Problem is Elizabeth Bennet is my favorite Indigoblu stamp,all the work has already been done by Kay Halliwell Sutton she just needs tinting very softly, I really wanted to use her, so nothing else was ever going to feel right. Anyway here she is:

Materials used:
Main Image : Elizabeth Bennet stamp from Indigo blu coloured with promarkes
Background paper : Kanban Lavender Rose paperpack
Spellbinders Grand circles smallest die
Clarity Birdcage stamp
Marianne Clock die
Sentiment & Bird stamp: Papermania Urban stamps Vintage Notes
Crotchet lace from Creative Expressions via Sam Poole's online shop 'Creative Studios'
Flowers: Handmade by me using spellbinders Bitty Blossoms dies
Rose pink pearlised card, Small clock & metal keyhole & key from my crafty stash
Hope you like it, I had so much fun putting it together although distressing paper is a bit alien to me, I like crisp edges but this is my attempt at Shabby Chic meets vintage.
I look forward to seeing your take on this vintage theme, have fun and good luck...
Bye for now
