Southern Girls Challenge#8

Hey all! It's time again for another challenge over at Southern Girls. This week we want to see something Vintage. I know some of you girls are really good with this, so I bet we'll see some amazing creations. Vintage is NOT my forte`, but here's my best shot...

This image was given to the DT to use and it's form Whimsey Stamps(Crissy Armstrong). At first glance she seemed easy enough to color, but looks can be deceiving as I had a really hard time with her.YOu can see(hopefully) that all my papers are distressed and I used a Tim Holtz distressing tool for that...so much easier than using the scissors, lol

Here's a close-up of the girl. I'm still not happy with the coloring, but sometimes you just gotta let it go,lol

Close up of the left side. Idk if buttons are vintage, but they worked for me, hope it's ok. The pretty flowers are Wild Orchid and the buttons are from my stash.


The right side. I did another turned corner with flowers and I think it
accents this layout nicely. A couple more buttons to even things out, lol I don't think I can begin to explain to you how my mind works, but it seemed lopsided to me without the buttons.

Ok ladies and gents that's it for me, but if you wanna try out something vintage and have a chance at:

1) For Int. crafters a superb 5 digital images from their shop
and
2) An awesome prize pack from Mad for Markers the New Zealand/Aus. crafters.

Can't wait to see what you come up with! Hope you all are having a fabulous day and make sure to stop by and see the rest of the DT's wonderful creations!
Thanks for stopping by!
