Vintage- Arty Girlz

A theme this week that I couldn't resist. I'm so busy at the moment with real life as the rebuild of the house is at the stage where all the trades are back to back to do their bit and its very exciting, so really crafting should be way towards the bottom of the list, but Vintage is a look that I LOVE to create.

And here is a closer photo showing the acetate and also the words of the verse which is from Inka Stamps

3D Jean is sponsoring the Arty Girlz site this week.

Thanks for looking...please click the images to enlarge them.

Oh Jo this is just so beautiful.
I love that you have used acetate. It really shows off your work. Those snow flakes are just wonderful.

Thank you so much for taking time out, this is wonderful.

Good luck with your final stage.

Fabulous - I love your acetate cards. To be truthful it was you who originally got me started using acetate years ago when 'Simply Stamping' first came out - actually before then because it was forum we were on. Anyway thank you for being so inspiring then and now.

I love the idea of the girl in fron to the large snowflake. that is actually wanted to try with the christmas card I did, using a large foam snowflake stamp, but could I find? oh no, not until the next day!!

Inka said...

Oh my goodness Jo this is so beautiful! You are such an inspiration. After seeing the acetate that both you and Joanne have done, I am going to have to give it a try. I just love the look!

fabulous card Jo - you have a way with acetate that just works. Great verse and images, wonderful props AND lovely new look to the blog too.

Audrey said...

awwwwwww. that sentiment is very touching. And of course I love your vintage style ;-)

KardKrazy said...

Very different to use acetate with vintage -- you've made it work so well! Lovely piece.
(BTW, I would think with all the stress that comes from house building, crafting would be essential:)
