The Sweetest Thing

Back today with a vintage piece.
I used Tim's Winged Things stamp set for this piece on a backdrop created with a layer of Antique Linen Distress Paint and Distress Crayons Tumbled Glass and Vintage Photo.
A touch of stencilling has been added to the backdrop using one of Tim Holtz new Mini Layering Stencils and I then blended more Distress Crayon across the background and stencilled areas.
She stands on a layer of corrugated card which has been painted lightly with Antique Linen Distress Paint.
I also added a circular piece of rusty tin wire and she is holding a vintage pen nib.
I have added tape nestled behind the corrugated card along with a few remnant rubs. I also included a piece of Film Strip Ribbon which also has a Remnant Rub Added. A little red heart adds a pop of colour.
A SWEET Flashcard adds a little more interest, I crumpled the card and then coloured with Distress Crayon to highlight the creases and add to the vintage/aged feel.
I added delicate splatters of white paint for an added layer of interest.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
