Vintage Cards using distressing - My new Passion - Digital Images from http://freevintagedigistamps.blogspot.com/  LOVE, LOVE this site.










I love this digital image - Sweet Summer Fun - Watermelon Cocoa digital Image from Sweet & Sassy. Copic pens - StampinUp card stock Gumball Green & Melon Mambo.  I have used an entire package of Gumball Green in the last week - I've got to order more.



Cute Journal, card & ribbon below from the dollar bin @ Michaels.





This is a 99 cent stamp from Sweet & Sassy - Best dollar I ever spent.  The butterfly is colored using Copic pens.  The background was created by using various StampinUp Ink pads and Copic pens
I couldn't wait to get my hands on this NEW stamp set from Stampin Up!!!   PLEASANT POPPIES.       Using Stampin Up cardstock and Ink - Gumball Green and Midnight Muse.  I created the marbling sky effect using a sponge and Midnight Muse stamp pad.  I colored the poppies with Copic Markers.


Fine Feathers

I ordered a new stamp set from Stampin up - Fine Feathers - I wasn't sure if I would use the set much, but it is becoming one of my favorites along with new color Gumball Green.  Here are a few sames using both and a few vintage techniques.

The first uses Stampin Up paper and stamp pads of Gumball Green & Wisteria Wonder.



The second uses Gumball Green and Tempting Turquoise.




Hello,

I have been working on cards for the last few weeks and want to share a few with you.
