PTT#69 Vintage or Shabby Chic

We are challenging you all to create a Vintage or Shabby Chic Card this week here at Party Time Tuesdays and have been joined by six (yes you read it correctly) SIX fabulous sponsors this week.

For my card I chose to make it look vintage by using lots of distressing, in the form of crumpling my image, distressing the edges of all my papers and using distress inks to give it an aged look.  I also used some vintage lace and old newsprint papers.

Being married to a chef I couldn't go past using the adorable AJ the Chef image from The Stamping Boutique.  I colored in AJ with my Tria Markers and a Touch of Distress Ink.  What's Cooking is something I ask quite a bit at my house as I am lucky to live with two men who love to cook, my dad who now lives with us also loves to cook, so this gives me more time to craft.......hehe.  

Vintage is so not my style, but I was kinda happy how this turned out as its sort of cutesy vintage.

All the other Party Planners this week have created some beautiful Vintage/Shabby Chic cards for your inspiration so be sure to pop over to the PTT Blog and check them all out.
