'A Vintage Affair'...that sounds like the title of a Midsomer Murder plot to me!
You'll be relieved to hear that there will be no murders here! I chose the title today to reflect the fact that I carefully searched my trinket box to make this card. I am very lucky to live near to the venue for the annual Cotswold Vintage Fair, and over the years have bought some lovely old bits and pieces, perfect for twiddling with and adding to my cards. This card has an old piece of vintage lace, a vintage pearl button and vintage flower charm attached.
Todays card is cut out using a template stencil from Dutch Doobadoo - 'four petals'. I have used some of the images from a gorgeous set of Stempelglede rubber stamps - 'Postcard from Paris' to decorate the watercolour card backgrounds, and painted the main image with Twinkling H20's, (it is a shame the twinkly effect isn't caught on camera because it looks rather pretty). I sprinkled a little Frantage around the edge of the image.
I have decorated the card with twine, cheesecloth, a princess pin and flowers from The Ribbon Girl.
The lace, pearl button and flower charm are real vintage findings and the wooden heart button is from Live and Love Crafts.
