vintage plus red

It's vintage week over at 365 Cards, and I'm tagging along. First up is Day 168, vintage + red. This card is based on the sketch over at Cupcake Craft Challenges.



Just a simple layout, using blocks of distressed, stamped papers. They have all been stitched for a shabby finish. The top left block is covered in crackle paint to give it a subtle difference from the block below. The butterflies have been embossed in distress EP and the fairy has been raised with foam pads for more dimension.



supplies: image from The Graphics Fairy, lifestyle crafts die, Tim Holtz stamps, distress ink, Ranger distress crackle paint, distress embossing powder, Viva Decor pearl pen.
