Good afternoon. 
The sun might be shining but the wind is up and it's feeling a little chilly after the last couple of spring like days.
I'm still keeping the dog out of mischief and making steel erectors drinks as the shed emerges from the ground. So I've had lot's of time to play in my craft room as pushing a hoover pulls on my back. I pushed the trolley around the supermarket and tweaked it so I'm letting it get plenty of rest, LOL.

I don't  really do vintage style but this fortnight's challenge at Cards and More is Non Cute so I thought I would have a go as I had time on my hands to play.

The main image is an old rose stamp that I must have had for 10 years and had completely forgotten about 
as it's a wooden stamp from Rubber Stampede. I coloured the roses using Copics as follows-
Roses - RV95, R81, 85
Leaves - G82, 85, 99, BG96, RV95
I then took the brightness down by over inking in Tattered Rose distress ink. I stamped, coloured and mounted an extra two of the largest roses on pads. I then cut out the main image.
The background was made using a background rose stamp that was free in Cardmaking and Papercraft last month, inked in Milled Lavender and Tattered Rose. I over stamped three separate stamps from a set by Artemio in Momento Black Tuxedo. The sentiment is from my Dandelion set from Inkyliscious. The whole background was mounted on black card then a A6 white base card.
The rose image was set off to one side to complete the card.

Well thats my take on vintage and I shall enter it in the following challenges:-
