Inspired again - thanks for sharing all your lovely work.
My vintage creation this weeks takes inspiration from the pretty rich 'self patterned' papers I associate with Vintage and also the thoughts of days gone by that come to mind with this cute pram image (credit to Jacky for sharing it with me a while ago).
SU 1 3/4" circle punch
SU stamp sets - Fresh Cuts and Everyday Flexible Phrases
SU Big Shot and Top Note die (thanks D)
SU Melon Mambo cardstock and ink
Buttons, ribbon, scrap cardstock and DSP
I think I'm becoming addicted to these challenges. This is my first ever "out there for public consumption" scrap page. It is a photo of my husband and his brothers, taken in the early 1950's, all dressed up in their best clothes. The truly "vintage" part of this page are the buttons....taken from my dear MIL's collection (now mine).
Thankyou for the opportunity and for giving me the inspiration to try these things.
Another great challenge, a colour challenge. These colours instantly, screamed OWL.
CS - choc chip, so saffron ( didn't have barely banana )
DSP - Bella Rose, for leaves
Ink - choc chip
Dies - top note, little leaves
Punches - oval & scalloped oval
Stamps - Vintage Vogue, Oval All
The chipboard owl was inked with choc chip, then covered with dimensional magic. Just before the dimensional magic was dry ( so it was a little bit tacky ) I got a scrap of CS & did a cross hatch pattern all over the owl to give it a textured look, however this just appeared shiny in the photo... looks better IRL.

I hand cut oval I traced as oval punch wouldn't go through 3 layers of CS - funny that LOL Should have punched individually, but was lazy as I thought that I may not be able to line up the 3 ovals perfectly.....! I suspended bird cage with twine.
