another vintage collage

Here is another little collage I finished this week:



First I made the background (forgot to scan it before I added my collage elements).  I love using the Tim Holtz inking tool for adding colors to white/cream cardstock.  THis time I used most of the blue distress inks including broken china and then used pine needles to darken along the edges.  Overstamped with a Magenta small floral vine and some tiny dots around the edges.

The image is from Paper Whimsy (love their images).  Butterfly is from K & Co.  Sentiment from an old hymnal. Added a pearl to her neckline, some tiny black gems to the butterfly and sentiment, Stickles turquoise glitter and some soft white ribbon.  Mounted to a piece of black cardstock.

A few more collages are in the making; just a few finishing touches to add. 

Have a good Sunday!

Sweet, un-red/pink Valentine!! This inspires me to dream up something different for a valentine, too..... we sure can get stuck in the obvious color schemes.....
