Very Vintage

Very Vintage - The challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity this week is Very Vintage. It is so fun to do vintage. I enjoy it so much, but I rarely do it. I not sure why.

My papers are K and Company's Ancestry. I have had this pad for several years and it is always fun to pull it out. I inked all of my papers with Vintage Photo distress inks. The ribbon was also aged using the same ink.

The circle was created using one on my new SB grands. I love them and my new Grand Caliber machine.

The chipborad keys and not really chipboard at all. I cut draft cardstock with my Cricut using the Sentimental cartridge several times, then stacked them to get the thickness. After stacking them, I used my gold acrylic dabber and dabbed it on thickly. I wanted the bumpy texture! After it dried, I embellished each key with 3 rhinestones.

For my stickpin, I used several beads. I added a teal feather and 3 pearls that were made using my pearl pen.
