Vintage A La Linda!!

 These cards were made after seeing a card that Linda Coughlin - The Funkie Junkie made some weeks ago now.  The papers are some digital ones that Linda has used on her card. The feature tags are from The Graphic Fairy.
I made two of the flowers myself using Linda's technique with crinoline, tulle and dye.  The lace has been hand dyed with tea bags and on the two birds card, with a Tim Holtz reinker.  Both metal corners and the butterfly have been given Linda's treatment using Ranger's Weathered White embossing powder and distress stain.  I used a Tim Holtz doily die and Cheery Lynn dies for the backing doilies.
Stampin' Up card stock matched perfectly for all three cards.
Even though I love these cards, I wasn't sure how they would be received by my potential customers but I needn't have worried....all three have sold.
I'll leave it that and if you have any questions, feel free to email me.
Enjoy your day everyone and once again thanks for visiting my blog.

These are just gorgeous, Leigh. Love the vintage pink color palette and doilies and all that wonderful altered metal! Super work with the crinoline flowers too! And happy to hear your customers snapped them up.
