My First Attempt at Vintage/Shabby

Hello friends...

Today I have something scary to share with you...

YES, I said scary...

My very first attempt at vintage/Shabby!

I had passed up many a challenge because I had no clue

how to create a vintage anything....

I decided to go searching through blogs to get 

ideas and inspiration...

funny thing was I didnt make it past the first blog

Please give me your honest opinion!

I used an image I found on the internet
In person the photo only has a slight lavender hugh... but in photos looks much more purple

    2. WOW!! Rina its absolutely stunning!!!Gorgeous!!!I cant believe its your first attempt come and give me some lessons LOL!!

    3. Great job!!!! If you don't mind some friendly criticism the darker purple looks too modern. All the other shabby chic flowers, lace, pearl, etc colors are awesome. Not that I am a "maven" but my daughter and I just did her wedding all "shabby chic" last May.

      1. Nope.... not at all, as a matter of fact, I wish more people felt inclined to give constructive critisim!! I find it refreshing and I appreciate it!

    4. WOW, WOW, WOW!!!!! This is absolutely vintage and amazing!!!!! I actually like the touch of lavender (my fav colour, lol)!!!! I think it gives it something special! Hugs, Brigitte

    5. Hi Rina, first of all my compliments, a great beautiful card. Even though it is the first time, I find him wonderful. Also the color purple is fine for vintage, especially because you have the whole card in one color. Coincidence does not exist. We have a lot in common as you know about our granddaughters. Ryanna Grace is a wonderful girl to see, very nice picture of her. But believe it or not, I also got my first vintage card on my blog posted today. This may be no coincidence. I'm curious what you think of my card.Dear greetings from me, xxxDorothy

    24. Rina, your beautifully tinted vintage photo looks fabulous surrounded by the delicately cut and pearled frame on this pretty card. Lovin' your use of the soft layers of fabrics and ribbons and other wonderful supporting accents too! So glad to see your entry at the Crafts and Me Stamps digi team's "vintage" challenge. Hugz, ~ Rose

    25. Way to go Rina. Well you'd never know it was your first vintage card, I'm so impressed. If it were mine the only thing different I would do is at a bit of white gesso here or there, but that's me personally, you know I love that stuff.
      Check our my blog in the morning. I have a real vintage treat.
      Look forward to seeing more vintage from you.
      Hugs Tracy x
