LOTV Vintage Wedding

Good Morning to you ladies!  I hope you have a spectacular day!

Today I have 2 challenges, the other one will post later so I hope you come back to visit, please!

This first one is Divas By Design Challenge Weddings and Anniversaries.
We chose to use Lili of the Valley Images 

I decided to make a old vintage looking post card for either a Anniversary or Wedding with my LOTV  image.  The papers are from Teresa Collins 'Far Away" line. The post card was right in the middle of the page just staring at me, all I did was cut and distress.

Here are some Prima embellishments and a crocheted doily to dress it up with.

My friend Lisa always has tutorials and this one fit the mood I wanted to create, I cracked the paper.  I used clear embossing powder and versa mark to emboss 4 times over this image and the round sentiment. After embossing I put it in my freezer for 1 hour and after removing it from the freezer I immediately started to gently crack it. Then I rubbed distressed ink 'Vintage Photo' all around the image to fill in the cracks. Thank you Lisa for doing this on your card recently!! 

My image is raised up a bit on dimensional dots from SU and then I glued a row of beads around my Wedding Couple.

Here is the cracked sentiment I made. This is also a LOTV product.  I am loving their new grunge line.

Here is my post card laying flat.  You can leave your own sentiment on the back of this post card and this style can be used at a card, gift tag or mounted on a canvas! lol

Thank you so much for visiting with me today, wish you all a lovely day!
Hugs Kelly
