Tilda Celebrates Summer Love Wishes Easel Card

Hello everyone. I've been busy for the last two evenings because I really wanted to make an easel card to join the TOMIC Challenge # 5 this week. I am not very good at doing vintage cards, but for some reason, I wanted to challenge myself to do one. After pacing around my craftroom for awhile, I was able to dig out some of the vintage-looking DP for my card. There were quite a few images I bought from the 2011 Sweet Rainbow Collection at Magnolia-licious, but I still have a few that I didn't get a chance to use yet. Tilda Celebrates Summer is one of them. I am also using this easel card for some other challenges, you can scroll down to the bottom of this post for the challenges information.

Here is my finished card. Because I wanted to use a vintage theme, besides using the distressed DP, I also brush a few light strokes of gold distressing crackle paint on the DP. I also punched out some flourish/swirly shapes with plain white cardstock and put the crackle paints on them to use as embellishments.

Closer view of this Tilda image. I added some FlowerSoft on the wreath she holds and also added a heart for her to hold too.

Closer view to show you that I put a Magnolia sentiment ("Loving Wishes") under the scallop shape. I peeled open the middle of the scallop shape to let the sentiment show from underneath. The bottom picture is a closer view to show you I did a little bow and a flower to put on top.

Here are some closer views to show you the distressing crackle paint effect on the DP and punched shapes. You can click on each of these pictures to enlarge its size.
