Inky Divas Challenge - Week of August 11

The challenge posted this week was to make a "Vintage Chic" card.  I don't do a lot of cards with this style so it was a struggle.  I finally came up with this card that I think meets the challenge.  Lots of sponging, distressing and muted colours are what I think of when I hear vintage chic.

Mixed Media

I have a lot of catching up to do - I have been stamping pretty much every day and even taking photos of my projects.  I just haven't sat myself down to post to this blog.

This is a project I made today.  A mixed media project.  Compared to a lot of these projects this one is pretty simple but I am really happy with it.  I was able to use a lot of the toys tools in my craft room all in one project.

I was so anxious to get a photo that I didn't let the mod podge dry completely - you can still some of the white around the pumpkins.
