Mixed Media Card Challenge - Vintage (Key)


I do hope you get to play along with this months Mixed Media Card Challenge, Theme: Vintage, Optional Element: Key

Whenever I think of vintage cards I think of Distress Inks and layering, and the first thing I thought of for the "optional element: key", was this fabulous sentiment by Dyan Reaveley The Right Words.

The cream patterned hearts paper by Pink Paislee, was over-stamped with Darkroom Door Sheet Music in Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Dyan Reaveley The Right Words sentiment was stamped in black, fussy cut and distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The heart template (a free outline downloaded from the internet) was hand cut from Sandylion patterned paper and pop-dotted over the lace ribbon from my stash. I added the Teresa Collins key and a huge dose of Vintage Photo Distress Ink, so much so I looked like I had developed a 20 pack a day habit!
