Just Magnolia DT - Vintage

This week's challenge at Just Magnolia is "vintage" - right up my street!!! I just had to have a go at stamping and colouring onto kraft cardstock after seeing the mega talented Rach do the same on her blog last week and I love the result, will definitely be doing this again soon in fact you may very well get bored of seeing it LOL!
I used Maid Marian Tilda and Prince Phillip the frog from the fairytale collection and coloured them with copics. I used a white gel pen for the white bits and I have added some stickles to the crown and parts of Tilda's dress. The green paper is K&Co and the kraft/red paper is MME. I've distressed the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink.
All the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts and I punched some leaves with my Woodware punch. I stamped the "kiss me I'm a prince" sentiment from Magnolia with Walnut stain distress ink and then traced over it with a gold pen as it didn't show enough - still doesn't show up as much as I'd like but tis done now LOL!!
I added lace down the edge of one of the paper panels and a lace bow for a vintage feel and some pearls in each corner.

Hope you like it and can join us this week at Just Magnolia. The rest of the team's vintage creations are gorgeous as always, I hope you can pop and have a peep, and I'm delighted to say we have a new team member - Kathy has joined us - welcome to the team hun!! x
