Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge

Good morning everyone!  It's almost 60 degrees here in the Chicago land area and this has been such a weird winter as we are suppose to get snow and freezing temperatures tomorrow; crazy, crazy!

We have a great challenge for you today and would love for you to play along!  Here is the sketch for today's challenge, and you can load your works of art HERE:

Below is my project and I once again used my favorite SAB set, Feeling Sentimental.  To me, this set has such a vintage feel to it and I think is perfect for distressing and grudging up.  After I ran my Very Vanilla c/s through the Chevron EF, I did the direct to paper technique and swiped Soft Suede and Midnight Muse over the c/s.  I then distress the edges and added some Vintage Trinket brads at the corner.  I stamped the phone booth image with Midnight Muse, and water colored the image with Midnight Muse and Soft Suede.  Here's the details of what I used:

Stamps: Feeling Sentimental, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Midnight Muse, Soft Suede
Papers: Very Vanilla, Midnight Muse, Mocha Morning DSP
Accessories: Big Shot, Chevron EF, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits, Vintage Trinkets Brads and Pin, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Soft Suede Button, Distressing Tool, Dimensionals, Watercolor Brush

Great card! Love how your roughed up the background. I dont do vintage very well, but you've given me a few ideas - Thanks!

The background on this card is so pretty. I love your distressing. Awesome card. I finally got this set but have not put ink to it yet--maybe tomorrow.

Absolutely ADORE that distressed background and I LOVE the image--and especially because it's blue! Reminds me of the Doctor (Doctor Who). Sorry to be MIA last week! Life intervened, lol! :) HUGS!!!

Hi Eileen,

When I saw this gorgeous card I was in love! I think it's partly because of the stamps you used & those colours (plus I'm a huge Doctor Who fan). This is a fantastic card!!!
