Today with this card I feel like I really accomplished something - let me explain.  For the past 4 years I have been visiting hundreds of the great card and scrapbook blogs all over the world.  I LOVE the look of the beautiful vintage cards so many of you create.  I have wanted to try one for so long, but for some reason they really intimidate me!  I think it's because they are so far from my comfort zone of neat and tailored, lol.  Well, today I jumped in and DID ONE!!!  My cousin is going on an all girlfriends cruise to Nova Scotia and I wanted to send her a bon voyage card - it was the perfect chance to try some vintage!  I had a blast!!!!  I think Tim Holtz would laugh at how much of his distress inks I used!  I really got a bit carried away, but oh what fun!  Please leave me an honest opinion on this.  I need guidance and advice.  Over all, I think it's pretty good, but not too sure if there is enough on it , or too much.  In any case, I'm not afraid of vintage any more!


  1. Aloha Joanne, and wow i think the craft god Tim Holtz would be so pleased with you! It honestly doesnt look as if you need guidance, as far as I can tell you SO got the vintage look. Well done on trying something new...proud of ya! CoB

  2. Oh wow Jo, no-one would know it's a first, it's beautiful. I am in awe of anyone who can get this look because I can't :O)

I have never tried this technique because like you I am quite nervous about it...but you have totally done a great job that is for sure! I love the texture you have given it as well. Your cousin is going to love this and treasure it that is for sure!
