dream time

Hello , my friends . Hope that you are all enjoying your day/ evening. Thank you for calling in .
I happened to visit one of my favourite shops today . Vintage Decor on Magill Road in Adelaide .
"Vintage Decor" To Di for on the business card . Di and Hubby are the most delightful people and they have some beautifully  awesome  and  amazing vintage  furnture , soft furnishings and a huge range of gift ideas . I am always inspired to make vintage style cards after I visit because of the nature of the place .
And so to todays card .

I began with a White Gloss card . I brayered over front with Peach Parfait ink . I then  randomly sponged green ink over that . Using Soft Suede I sponged the edges and dabbed some on front . All this to hopefully achieve a 'vintage'  background . Then in Soft Suede again I stamped En Francais on the front . And stamped 'dream '  from  an Inkadinkado  set , at top . The image stamped on DSP , Patterns Stack , Subtles Collection   from set , Every Moment SU , is coloured with  pencils . I cut around image roughly then  sponged edges with Soft Suede. I only added a flower with Rhinestone centre as embellishment .
Off now to search through my stamps  , vintage papers and embellishments to create more .
Thanks again for stopping by , catch you again soon , cheers for now Shirley-anne
