CR84Fun/2sketches4You

Hello again!  I am so sorry I was gone for so long.  I feel like it has been forever since I posted.  I know it has only been days but that feels like a long time. 
I made a card for my sweet blog friend Mona's new color challenge CR84FN.  She has the most beautiful color palette this week.  I fell back on my shabby ways and used a vintage image I have been wanting to use.
I also used the sketch at 2Sketches4You to get me started.  A great sketch always helps get me going in the right direction.
I have a before picture of this vintage image so you can see how I altered it.  I printed it out on some white cardstock and then colored the spool of thread with my Copics since it was very pale in color.  Then I used my absolute favorite color ink for altering which is the Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen.  Now I have turned a very washed out image into something that matches my color scheme.  You could color the spool of thread any color you like.

Look at this beautiful inspiration photo.  I know it looks a little more clean with the crisp colors, but I was itching to make a shabby inked up vintage image card.  :)

Supplies: Cardstock: PTI/Kraft, DP: My Minds Eye, October Afternoon, Stamps:WaltzingMouse, Twill: Melissa Phillips Etsy, Lace: Wrights, Brads: Making Memories,Ink: Memento London Fog, Copics: as shown in Picture

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather
