Vintage Girlfriends

This week's theme over at Just for Fun is "Vintage".   I really had no idea what I was going to do as I have very few vintage style stamps but after having searched the internet I found a lovely image at The Graphics Fairy.

This image also suits the theme of "Gal Pals" over at Gingersnap Creations, so I've made a card which I'll either use as a small book cover (as I've just acquired a Bind-it-All machine) or it's just the right size to fit onto a small canvas.




The background is textured card inked with Antique Linen & Peeled Pain Distress Stains
Background stamp is V&A Potpourri inked in Forest Moss DI
Frame made from a nestie, inked in various DI's & Gold ink & coated in Rock Candy Crackle Paint
Sentiment is an Inkadinkado Inchie & chain is from a necklace

Thanks for visiting, hope you're all having a great day wherever you are.
