Week 647 - Anything Goes with option Vintage at Allsorts challenge


Mervi is our host at Allsorts challenge this week. She has chosen the theme of  Anything Goes with a Vintage option. 

I've gone for the vintage option for my DT card using the hydrangea digi from Ruth Hamilton Design.

I printed out the digi and then used various shades of DI ink over the top and then a little faux bleaching. As hydrangeas are rarely one shade of colour this was my way of showing that. I used an old Spellbinder die and cut out the aperture using another one from the set for a vintage feel. I used an embossing folder and inked the edges adding some ribbon for the background. Another spellbinder die for the sentiment and some butterflies. A tiny bit of the was from the sentiment die was used on the corners.

We have two winners this week who will receive either this Indigo Blu Stamp

Indigo Blu Rose Blush stamp

or a choice of digis from

Ruth Hamilton Design: I have enjoyed crafting all my life and have been involved in the craft industry for several years. I started drawing images to use on cards for my own use and then went on to design some stamps for a well known craft company.I am an avid lover of nature so most of my drawings are of flowers, birds and animals. Even when I can’t travel I love spending time in the garden, growing plants and looking after them. I hope you enjoy colouring my digi images, I have several YouTube vidoes here.

I'm also entering this card into the current Anything Goes #71 challenge at CD Sunday plus. I used a digi from Ruth Hamilton Design.
