Combining 2 challenges again tonight.... :) One from 365Cards and another a sketch from Card Patterns.
I'm not very good at creating vintage looking cards. It's one of those challenges that I try to avoid :P But I've got my chandie stamp that I have not broken out from its packaging yet and I can't wait to use them (am going to get my hands on some Inkadinkado's as well.. saw some online. Need to scour the LSS to see if they have any :P )
Alright.... anyway, the challenge for Day 180 is Going Vintage. Amy did a fantastic job inspiring me, by the way. And CardPattern's sketch #29 is fun but challenging.
Code : AO0051
I distressed the cardstock and also the patterned paper and then inked them with distressed ink to create an 'aged' effect. Then I drew the swirls on with silver and gold pen. I wanted it to have an aged look as well... like discoloured brass... then I punched out the butterflies with my favourite puncher of the moment, layered them and voila! my card is done :)
It did take me about close to 2 hours to get this whole thing working.... well, like I said... I'm not that great at making vintage cards :)
