Make it Vintage with Robyn's Fetish and ADFD

The new challenge at the 

"Make it Vintage"

Our sponsor is A Day for Daisies!

Our team was allowed  to choose from the wide variety
of vintage images from the ADFD Shop!

I chose to work with Vintage School Girl One

To me, when I saw our challenge was "Vintage",
I thought "old", like it came out of Grandma's cedar chest.

To get that "old" look, here's what I did:

I was inspired by the Chateau Lavender Mat Stack from DCWV.
Some of the papers in that pack are just stunning
with the texture and glitter... WOW!

I distressed all my edges with scissors then inked the edges
with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Ink
and cut the cameo frame with my eClips.

To get the "old" look around my school girl, I colored her with Copics,
ripped her out of the card stock to get that torn-looking edge,
then spritzed her with a little water.
I crumpled her into a ball to let the inks run,
then flattened it out to air dry.
While it was still damp, I inked the edges with TH Tea Dye.

I made the roses with my eClips and some 
home-made shimmer spray.

Overall, I'm happy with how it turned out
and I hope you'll join us this week
at the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog
to show us how YOU 

Thanks for stopping in.
See you next time!

Yes this looks really vintage, thanks for sharing how you made it look like this. I shall do this soon since I really like to have a torn and used feeling in my cards... sometimes to hide what has gone wrong but not always... hugs from Sweden.
