Vintage Style

Started with a digital stamp from Elizabeth Mae's  from the dress form collection. If you get a chance go over and check out her stamps they are super cute. Mary on CardzTv did a video with one of  them. that is how I found them. Colored in with copic markers. Punched out with spellbinders classic scalloped ovals large #5 A2 card base navy mat in aqua mist from PTI run through the cuttlebug embossing folder spots and dots. All edges inked with Studio G ink. PTI summer sunrise ribbon and a prima flower. Vintage style from PTI Button Boutique collection. A few liquid pearls from ranger buttercup first time I have use these think I need a little more practice with them. Was wondering if anyone has compared them and viva decor pearl pens and if so which ones did you like better.

  17. I love the colors in your card, it's beautiful! I saw those dress forms when she came out with them, I may have to buy one now.... Great card!

    I've only used Viva decor, and only have one (cost and availability). I like it but have used other paint in the past that was similar, just takes practice getting it to look the way you want. Yours looks good:-)

  18. Your card is amazing. I really love the vintage feel. I am a fellow participant at "Getting Cricky"

    I have both Pearl Pens and Liquid Pearls. They are pretty much comparable to each other. The Pearl Pens have a tendency to poof sometimes when there is an air bubble which can mess up a project if you are needing tiny pearls but I do like them both.
