Our Vintage Affair

The June Card Challenge at Our Vintage Affair is A Sketch with Background stamping.

I followed a tutorial to make a folded card by Loriette on her gorgeous blog A Perfect Waste of Time.

I wanted to make a vintage peachy coloured card, so as I couldn't find any suitable paper in my stash I painted some card stock with a matt peach coloured emulsion then when dry I used one of the Lost coast designs Labels stamps with coffee archival ink and a lacy stamp which I sponged with cream emulsion as a contrast and this was punched out with a Martha Stewart lace punch. The three images are also Lost Coast Design stamps which I highlighted with distress inks.

The card opens to reveal a triangular pocket to which I added a matching tag.
Very short and sweet this post as haven't even thought about what to have for dinner yet. Ooops this crafting is becoming very addictive.

Happy Crafting X
