Hey there,

Here's a card I made today for Mojo Monday. I purchased this adorable image at Phindy's Place. The image is called Love Flutterby. I thought she looked like one of the vintage characters you see in the Little Golden books for kids.

I search high and low to get inspirations for her coloring. I found this really great blog called Two Crazy Crafters. It's all vintage and if you are looking for vintage inspiration, that where to go. I added this blog to my favorites!

So after starring at their banner for hours (kinda more like minutes), I played with some colors. I used my copic colors Y23, Y21 for yellow and added some E31 to give the yellow a aged look. I did the same for her shirt. I used R81, R83 and R85. Then E31. Her bandanna, shoes and hair got the same concept.

The sketch was a little difficult to turn vintage. I didn't want to go off from the sketch so I tried my best. I distressed, sponged and stitched the DP.

Well, I better go work on the laundry and dinner before the kids come home from school. It's going to be a long night. The weather calls for another 18" of snow over night and my DH is at play rehearsal. As always, thanks for looking.
