Vintage Scribble & Scrap

     Sunday morning -- the sun is shining and we had a bit of rain late last night (which we desperately need), and another new challenge starts today at Scribble & Scrap.  We always have an "Anything Goes" theme so there's absolutely no excuse not to play along.  You don't have to use a Scribble & Scrap image or digital papers to enter the challenge but they are all so lovely, why wouldn't you want to use one or the other or both?

     I used a wonderful image called "Vintage Beauty 2" and paired it up with papers from the "Fabulous Florals 2" set.  Wow, do I love the blue papers in that set!  Check this out --


 I used the sketch from Outlawz Sketch challenge this week.


     This vintage lady is colored with ProMarkers, then die cut.  I printed two of the blue papers from the set, and die cut one for the mat behind the image.  The second paper for the background is double printed at the bottom to make the darker strip but it's only one piece of paper.  I added no embellishments at all because I just wanted to show off that beautiful image and the gorgeous papers.  This has to be the most CAS 'vintage' card I've ever done but I think it qualifies as somewhat elegant, don't you agree?

     Challenges:
A Creative Romance -- Spring Flowers
Art Impressions -- Getting Girly
Crafty Catz -- A/G
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper -- A/G
Digistamps 4 Joy -- Vintage
Fan-Tastic Tuesday -- A/G

MFP Simple Salutations -- Elegant
Outlawz Alcohol Markers -- A/G

     Come play along with us over the next 2 weeks, won't you?  We'd love to see your fabulous creations.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
