Vintage Ballerina

Hi Everyone

Half term is now upon us.  Seems like the kids only just went back after Christmas!  It's going to be a noisy week in our house with our 3 Monkeys running around!

Today I would like to share with you a new style for me!  I have never attempted a Vintage Style Card before but I like to try new things so thought I would give it a go.  I knew that Sepia colours and Black and White could be classed as Vintage but had no clue about anything else so I had to research it.  I saw that there were several styles but the one that caught my eye was the Black and White with just a splash of one other colour.  So here it is!  I coloured the Image Black and White (Greyscale) with a Splash of Pink!  The Image is a new one from the very talented Hannah Lynn.  She is called Ballet Girl.  I coloured her using Promarkers.  The Card Blank is a 6" Square and my Base/Frame Layer is Bazill Basics.  The musical note Background Paper is from Vintage 1 Paper Pack which I purchased recently.  I mounted the Image onto a Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle Die Cut which I also cut in the same Card as my Base/Frame Layer.  I laid this on top of a Pink Doily which I decorated with Brown Pearl Gems.  I used some Pink Crochet Trim added a Lacy Satin Bow and various Brown Paper Flowers.  A couple of tiny Pink Pearl Gems were my finishing touch.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges
