MyGrafico Challenge #60 – Vintage

Welcome to another MyGrafico challenge. Today we were asked to make a vintage looking card using Wild Flowers by Mels Brushes.

I wanted my flower to be really 3-D so I printed the flower out 4 times and layered it using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. The top layer, I cut each petal apart to layer at different depths.

I used copics and the feather method to color the each flower, added stickles to the middle of the flower, Even the leaves are 3-D, only printed them out 3 times, and also colored them with copics.

Added a rub-on to the panel and some faux stitching to the edge. Paper comes from DCWV The Once upon A Time mat stack.


Remember the food labels I showed you the other day? The little flower on there was also from Wild Flowers. I used prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits for the flowers. Distressed the edges of the top note with blue ink. Computer generated the words. Just that little touch of the flower spruced up the labels.

Had to add this picture, it’s my favorite.


So would you like to win this Flower set? Then come join us over at MyGrafico challenge blog and play along. Can’t wait to see your creations.

I’ll be back in a bit with the winner from my blog candy.
