This was Hayley's challenge and boy did it bring A LOT of grumbling from the Ladybugs. HA! I love when others stamp vintage-y creations, but me - well, I do not stamp vintage!!! Not even sure I can do shabby/chic - LOL...and with ANIMALS? Really?
K, enough whining - on to my creation. I used Magnum and I LOVE this image - I figured lots of brown and distressing and maybe I could pretend it was shabby/vintage!
I used a layout from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #88; great layout! I distressed all the DP AND used tons and tons of Antique Linen Distress ink. See that somewhat ivory ribbon? It's flocked and I used the Antique Linen on it too, it really changed the way it looks - so cool IRL! The entire card was layered on Kraft card stock that was sponged in VersaMagic Jumbo Java. I also sponged around the edges of the image with PTI's Vintage Cream and Antique Linen. I kept the colors of Magnum pretty muted except for that gorgeous flower!
The lower right hand corner says "diet starts tomorrow!", just cracks me up!!
Hopefully I've lived up to Hayley's challenge - I'm sure the girls will tell me exactly how I've done...that's just how they are...and Kerry uses a whip sometimes!
