Vintage Beauty

This is a much more arty card that I've made using my stamps and a couple more from Hobby Art that go perfectly with the doodle stamps. It's in warm Autumn shades as it's really chilly down in the South today and I wanted some cheery colours.

Ingredients Used:
All stamps are by Hobby Art:
 Oodles of Doodles Set 1
 Diamond Background DC1921D
 Script GR1907G
Distress inks: Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick, Vintage Photo
VersaFine Vintage Sepia ink
Parchment Card by Southfield Stationers
Image-Collage Ladies by Dezinaworld
The main background paper is inked in Distress inks and stamped with the Diamond background in orange and brown.
The 2 decorative strips were inked in similar colours, one stamped with the Script in Vintage Photo and the other with the Diamond background and the small doodle flower in orange and brown.
The flowers were stamped in Vintage Sepia and coloured with darker shades of pink, red and orange. They were cut out and embossed on the reverse to give a 3D effect.
The collage image was cut out and inked around the edges.
All pieces of background were inked around the edges before fixing on the card and the remaining accents were added with foam tape.

Fabulous card Fliss - just goes to show that modern and vintage can work together perfectly. Love the way you've added your Doodle flowers around the beautiful image and the colours really are beautiful. (It's been jolly cold up North today too)!!
