A VERY Vintage Thank You

This is probably my most favorite style or technique least it is currently... I just find it so fun to work with the distressed/vintage tools...and the best part is that there just never seems to be 'too much'...(feel free to correct me on that if I'm wrong!) here is a list of toys I used to play with this time... :)
Paper = K and Company
TH clear stamps (7), TH masks (4), TH distress inks (peeled paint, walnut stain, antique linen and vintage photo), TH distress stickles
CB - Script folder

A BIG Thank U to Cuttlebug Spot for this weeks Vintage Challenge and to The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge for a fab sketch to work off of ...

  1. hello hello!
    you know I have never tried any masking! I can't believe it....
    and you do NOT have to be, never ever can have too much inking! at least it seems the more you add, the better and cooler it turns out!
    great project!
