Time for something vintage :)

Oh how chuffed was I to see the theme at stampin' for the weekend is days gone by! I love love love doing aged, vintage type cards with modern materials (starburst stains!)
Also at The Pink Elephant this week their challenge is to use Turquoise, Brown & neutral.
Also entering for the Allsorts challenge which is vintage.

Background paper is a vintage green which I distressed with scissors and distress ink (vintage photo) and the vertical panel is made with SS in turquoise, brown and a touch of green. I just blew it around with the heat gun in puddles and added more until I got a nice pattern then chucked it through the cuttlebug :) The horizontal panel is SS in opal sea oats with some sprays of moonshadow ink in pirate plunder gold. The image is stamped with moonglow midnight sapphire on SS in turquoise and brown and the edges distressed with distress ink in faded jeans is it called? Not sure but its the same colour as Molly's eyes! Text is stamped on moonshadow ink, flowers have been distressed and the leaves already were!
I'm happy, I got inky messy fingers and I managed to get it ourt in the post all in the same day whoop go me!

Not sure what the stamp is called but it was a simple expressions plate.
