Vintage Blue

Hmm blue and white along with vintage really isn't my bag but I decided to give it a go anyway as I do enjoy a challenge from Colour Create.

Stamped image, pearls, flowers, gems

This image is one of the ones Sue stamped for me, I don't know who it's by though. Thanks Sue, it came in handy very quickly!

I skimmed over the image with ink pads and added a little shading with copics, cut it out using oval nesties and stuck pearls around the edges. The flowers are Prima, highlighted using Galaxy markers and lush gems popped in the centres. I had to colour the large one using Pro Markers as was very turquoise to start with. The border is I think from a Heidi Grace alphabet pack, I'm not sure as no longer have the box! I went around the edge with a blue Stazon ink pad.

Not my usual thing but glad I gave it a try!



  1. This is stunning Victoria so glad you gave it a go so you could show us. Hugs Pascale

  2. What a gorgeous card, you've really excelled your self. The image is from a Tanda Stamps set called Retro Women Set 2. She's my favourite from the set, hence I thought you might like her :-) The pearls look stunning ! Sue x

  3. This is incredibly beautiful Victoria. The image is so vintage and I love the frame you made around it. Beautiful distressing too. Thanks for joining the Colour Create Challenge.
