A lil' birdie told me...

This DD Challenge was to make ANY image look vintage. The effect is done with sponging colour layers (apply light colour to dark...I used Certainly Celery, Old Olive and Always Artichoke and finished it off with Close to Cocoa). It was a fun challenge and something I had never tried before.




Recipe
Paper:Chatterbox DP, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White, Kraft
Ink:Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery
Stamp Set(s):Bird on Egg (Savvy Stamps), Faux Ribbon (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories: 1 1/4 Circle Punch, Scallop Punch (Marvy) Corner Rounder, Blue Teffeta Ribbon, Sponge, White Gel Pen, Stampin' Write Markers


I hope you are having a stampy day.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!
Alli
