Fussy and Fancy DT Card

Today sees an new challenge starting over at Fussy and Fancy, this time our theme is "Vintage with Distressing and Lace".  Why not pop on over and join the fun?

I loved making my DT card as I'm a huge fan of vintage (no surprises there!) and was able to indulge my girly side as well as get covered in ink!
The topper and bodice elements are both from Free Vintage Digital Stamps, a site I love for vintage digis of all sorts.  I coloured the ladies with very pale Promarkers and Flexmarkers before going in with Distress Inks in Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord and Pumice Stone.  I then covered the topper with double sided adhesive sheet and covered that with micro beads, I love the effect they give.
The papers are a mix of Hunkydory and Tim Holtz kraft resist, coloured with Dust Concord Distress Ink, they've all been distressed with my Timmy tool and some have been further shabbified with Distress Stickles in Milled Lavender.
Lace, ribbon, buttons and some punched flowers along with a scattering of pearls finish it off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
It's All About the Vintage - #23 - anything goes
Sisterhood of Crafters - diamonds, pearls or lace
Stampin' Royalty - #134 - buttons
