“Looking Back”
 Vintage, to me, refers to past years. 
It could be childhood memories, or times before we were born. 
To me it represents innocence and timelessness.
So with this mind I have created a scene that represents a young lady’s reflection to her past years and innocence. The stylish young lady is the present and the child is the innocent past.
At Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight it is all about Vintage…and how you interpret it.

Join us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and be in with a chance to win a fabulous stamp from Marina at Cottage Crafts!

The white stamping is using versamark on white card and clear embossing before inking up the card.
The child was gold embossed at the same time, so that I could mask her amongst the flowers, when I had finished using the wild honey DI I masked her again to add deeper colours around her for effect.
The lady is stamped with black Stayzon ink onto quick laminate, and gilding flakes put behind her hat band and flowers and attached to card inked in vintage stains, cut and layered and mounted. There is some random stamping using flourishes on the background card.
