I wanted to move away from my usual vintage, brown tones for the wonderful VINTAGE set from The Stamp Attic and try something a little more colourful and Spring like.
I cut a piece of white card 5" x 5" and then cut up into random pieces.  Each image from the VINTAGE set has then been stamped onto the pieces with coffee Archival Ink.
All my pieces have been coloured with worn lipstick Distress Ink and all the edges have been distressed using Tim's Paper Distresser tool, adding colour again to the edges for definition.
I have added a dimensional flower cut from an orange tone Bazzill card stock using the Mini Tattered Floral Set, colouring the edges with a little vintage photo Distress Ink.
The finishing touches are the sentiment "Vintage Collage" stamped with Archival Ink and sponged with wild honey Distress Ink along with coordinated buttons.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x

This is gorgeous and the colour tones are to die for...fab, as always!!

With regards to the magazine, I was told that you could show the cards, once the magazine was out of circulation and I know other contributors show their cards on their blogs, so...I think it's ok!

As you know, it's not a great day for me...but thank you for all your support, that means so much when things hit rock bottom!! Xxx

It makes for such a striking composition as it allows the eye to travel taking in the wonderful stamping.
Great card.
