Vintage

The challenge this week at Make it Colourful is Vintage Photo- Monochrome, B & W or Sepia . Well, this card turned out to be harder than I thought, but mainly because I overdid the background I think!  Too much going on behind the characters. Anyway, by the time I'd put it together, I wasn't going to start all over again! Arrrgghhh!






  I've used Old Oak Tree and Garden Picket Fence (twice!) from  Make it Crafty and  the characters are Lilith & Luca from Tickled Pink . The copics I have used are the warm greys WO, W1, W2, W4, W6, W9 and over it all E50 to add more warmth.
The paper is Kaisercraft, I've used a Tim Holtz embossing folder behind the image , the sentiment is from Bizzy Becs. There's a cuttlebug corner swirl, flower & lace & locket  from my stash, and the heart I cut on my silhouette and used several coats of embossing powder on it! Love it!



Right, now head on over to Make it Colouful to see what the  Colour Addicts have been up to!

Fabulous card! I love all the little details, but especially the embossed heart. Amazing how that transforms the embellie! Thanks for the tip on using E50 all over to add warmth. I'm definitely going to be trying that trick.
