A vintage challenge

Good morning, we're back with our first challenge for the new year at Vintage Stamping Challenges and this time our challenge is 'Vintage' with the optional extra of using your new stash. As always there is a great prize up for grabs from our generous sponsor Flonzcraft and of course my lovely teamies have come up with some gorgeous projects to inspire you 

I've used a shaped card blank, distress inks modelling paste and mica powder to create the background for this card. The two glamorous ladies are a lovely stamp by Flonzcraft - coloured with distress markers and I've decoupaged their dresses for a little more depth. I've added a fan made using a Joanna Sheen stamp, crinoline flowers made with tattered florals, a doily, buttons, feathers and faux pearls from my stash.  Here's another pic to show the detail

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Mess: sparkle/bling
Crazy 4 Challenges: ribbons and bows
Totally gorjuss: anything goes with ribbon

my poor laptop is playing up at the minute so I'm still very behind with my blog visits so apologies for not visiting, hopefully normal service will be resumed before too long
have a happy Monday
