Paris Flea Market - Vintage at DOC

Good evening everyone, this card should really have gone live last Friday, but I was a little late though not being well and then when I got home from work I fell asleep and didn't get to post it!  and as it fitted so well for our next challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge which is


 and I was posting late anyway, I thought I'd combine the two and post for both DOC and Dies to Die for with the one card.

As I hadn't been feeling well I wanted to make a card that wouldn't require colouring an image, so I chose these gorgeous papers from the new (ish) collection by Pion, 'Paris Flea Market'.

They are all so lovely I had a hard time deciding what I was going to use, but they also have a fabulous sheet of vintage images that are just perfect when you don't want to stamp and colour.

So I got out my ink, distressing tool, needle and thread and some gesso and distressed and shabbied everything up.

This is the result.

I've linked the products I've used at the end of the post.

Products used:

9mm Pink Velvet Ribbon
Pink Button Twine
8mm Pearl Ivory Flat Backs
6mm Pearl Ivory Flat Backs
Dusky Blue Wild Rose
Cherry Blossom Antique Blue Two Tone

Well that's all from me today, but I hope to see your lovely vintage makes over at Deep Ocean Challenge soon! :) xx
