Attempt at vintage

It's time for a first ever challenge at Tickled Pink - and the theme is one of my favorites: ANYTHING GOES!
The image is called Cheri With Tag and these cuties are available at Tickled Pink store. The papers are from Lily Bee, all treated with your simple bog-standard white acrylic paint.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
CLP - sketch
Charisma Cardz (3 entries) – birthdays and celebrations
Paper Crafting Journey - use a digi
Pixie Dust Studio - 2 or more ribbons
ABC Challenge (2 weeks) - SKETCH (see below) and “L” is for lace
Fab 'n' Funky - anything goes
Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes- Optional: Lace
Tuesday Throwdown - Embossing

Thanks for visiting!
Hugs
Annika

OMGosh Annika, I LOVE this card. It is soooo adorble. That image is just the cutest little thing and I love the papers and that beautiful rosette you added. I really like the white paint too. Just gorgeous!

Terrific card Annika, loving your rosette and pearls. Annette x

Linda Coughlin, the funkie junkie said...

Yeah, right, you attempted...and NAILED it. I love the slathering of white acrylic and the darling rosette. Hey, you should give lessons on using Copics. I know if I ran my fingers over little Cheri she would be flat as a pancake, but the depth and dimension you have achieved is totally incredible. Her eyes look like they are totally intended. How do you do that????

Hope the kiddies are 'pox free by now!

Hugs and New Year's blessings,
Linda
