Polkadoodles - Vintage

This week over at Polka Doodles Fliss
has challenged us to go vintage!
Fliss is a dab hand herself at this but I have to say
I felt a bit ignorant and went in search of some blogging inspiration.....
I have used imagery from All around and Everywhere CD
combined with some inking, grungeboard flourish,
screw head brad, rub on sentiment and a little faux stitching.
I have coloured the deer with some
of the lovely Aquamarkers from Letraset!
Many of the girls I know in blogland create fabulous
Vintage style projects but while reasearching I
came across the work of
some really amazing pieces of work.
Anyhow Blogland is a fantastic place to inspire
it's great to take time out and have a wander...
We still have our fantastic colouring competition
 on the go at Polkadoodles.
Perhaps you could combine the two
and add some colouring to your vintage project?
Wouldn't it be great to win this fabulous set of Aquamarkers!!!

I would also like to share this with
who are having a
Wendy Vecchi inspired challenge
(thats how I found her in the first place...)
