Vintage Notes with The Card Concept #73

Hello Everybody!

Welcome to The Card Concept Challenge #73, Vintage Notes! We have got a challenging inspiration photo for you this week, featuring a very eclectic mix of images, embellishments, and vintage charm. Will you go light and airy, or maybe a little dark and goth? We’d love to see how you are inspired! You can get all the details and link up your card over at The Card Concept right here:

There are so many wonderful details in this photo you could really do just about anything! I felt really inspired to do something with a vintage vibe, even though I don’t create a lot of vintage or shabby chic vintage designs. So, I pulled out a big box of tricks for a major production using tons of mixed media, embellishments, embossing paste, stencils, inks, stains, and a few bits and baubles to boot. But then I began creating in a true freestyle collage method, just cutting out and arranging a few unrelated images, cuts, and patterned papers, and voila! I had created an easy card I was really happy with that had a great vintage vibe to it. if you’ve never created a vintage look card before, give it a try with what you already have in your stash. You might just amaze yourself!

I can’t wait to see what my design team has created this week, for we have a few vintage look pros that take AMAZING to the next level! You can find all of their amazing ideas on The Card Concept blog, and link up your own project in your favorite style!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Live your life in color!

    Michele, your card is such a gorgeous take on the challenge. I love the addition of the strong blue, it really makes a statement and is perfect with the vintage details. I love the tiny feathers too. Another perfect creation from you.
