Vintage Gramaphone

Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.  The prize this month is a $10 coupon to spend in the store :)

Challenge 261 Theme 

'Anything Goes with VINTAGE'

Oh how I love vintage, think I have a passion for lace, pearls and flowers :) :) :) For this Twisted Easel card I covered the front and base of the card in cream flower lace which has gold threaded in it.  Next I printed my image and text on velum and coloured the image with Promarkers and Polychromos.  I then distressed my velum with gold leaf powder on the back of the velum attached with a light adhesive spray and then used Tim Holtz distress ink pads and rubber stamps on the font to grunge it up a bit.  To finish off the front panel I then used the same lace I have for the rest of the card and added a ruffle behind the mat.  With that done I then made my bow embellishment by stringing three strands of pearls and attaching a metal charm to the end (two angel wings to represent the 'soul' in the text and a 'musical note' for the word music) and two chains of copper bead chain and the bow from the same lace as before.  I added a Tattered Lace die cut using Musical Notes in keeping with the card theme and bent it so it would look like musical notes emitting from the roses.  Next it was onto the text writing area where I have used the Spellbinders Diamond Essence doily then used Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms to make my roses.  Two further gold metal embellishments were added and a little more of the copper bead chain to make a final flourish.
