Free Vintage Digital Stamps - Cupid Symphony

Just a quick reminder that I am looking for DT's for my new challenge blog over @ Eclectic Ellapu.
This is a new venture and I hope you will support me on the journey.  If you are interested in joining just pop over and have a look around.

Now onto business....

Its challenge time over @ Creative Card Crew this week and the theme is Newsprint, Map or Sheet Music background so I chose Music.  We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp with a $20 gift voucher so best you head on over and join in the fun.

I used a really cute vintage digi image from Free Vintage Digital Stamps - Cupid Symphony.

I just love that site so full of gorgeous vintage images.  Did I tell you I like vintage or have you guessed already LOL.  Anyway there wasn't too much colouring needed as there alot of shading on this so it wasn't that hard to do.  I did however use my crackle stamp over the top with clear embossing powder. I used a metal corner which I embossed using Tim Holtz crackle powder and then rubbed over with gold leaf.  The ribbon I used for the bow I cut down the sides and frayed it up to make it look old.  I had used all my vintage ribbon stash up so had to improvise LOL.  I used a leaf vine trim in brown and light pink to drape round the image from my hand made flower.  The flower and the pink vine trim along with the muslin (just showing) beneath the image and flower had the mahogany distress ink treatment. That is why you cannot see pink vine as it is now mahogany LOL. The backing paper and the image had a smidging of it also.  Did I mention I love distress ink LOL!!! 

Anyway that is enough of my babbling and without further adieu here are the pics you may have been waiting for..............

Anyway why don't you all head over to Creative Card Crew for our current challenge and have fun creating to be in with a chance of winning the wonderful prize from Simon Says Stamp

Thats it from me right now.

Hugz and love Elaine xxx
