Celebrate Vintage!

Hello All,

For today I am sending this card to Runway Inspired Challenge..  I actually had a dress like this one in high school.. Goodness knows what happened to it but I remember it like it was yesterday..

Entering Challenge:
Runway Inspired Challenge: ric#83

This dress reminds me of a dress I owned in high school.. It was so very comfortable to wear.. However, I think this model holds it very well.. And of course I saw this the day it posted so why not wait till the last minute!! Anyway, I just couldn't pass this up!! Here it is!!

Celebrate with a toast!!
Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
Springy card reminding me of sitting on
a porch enjoying the flowers and some red.
Close up of the bottle and glasses.
The simple sentiment says it all..
I would consider this an all occasion card.. You can celebrate just about anything: Anniversary, birthday, retirement, or just the joy of life.

So this is how I created it:
  1. Cut and scored a piece white CS to size A2
  2. Colored stamp with distress marks. Colors inspired by the photo.
  3. LIGHTLY sprayed the stamp to reactivate the ink and stamped on watercolor paper.
  4. Without re-inking I stamped the same image to the left and right of the original.
  5. Watercolored and then sponged Distress Ink around the perimeter and some washed black throughout the panel
  6. Mounted the panel to black CS leaving a border.
  7. Added the entire design to my white CS base.
Well that was it.. I hope you enjoyed the card.. Let me know by leaving a comment.. I love reading them. Have a great night or good morning (wherever you are in the world.) and thank you so much for stopping by.. 

All the best,

When I looked at your card saw the light that comes out of the darkness ... Are these beautiful memories that brings back to life from the darkness of memory, I do not know, but the card makes an electrifying impression. Beautiful and so much talking!
