Vintage Love Birds

Good Morning!  I took a few days off from blogland and creating in general.  I just needed a little break.  With all of the blog candy packages being shipped as of today, I am hoping for a fresh less-chaotic start to November.

Anyway, Kaboodle Doodles has a new challenge this week.  Our challenge is for you to make a project in the vintage style.  The challenge is sponsored by Stamp-n-Doodle and a $10 certificate is up for grabs.

I have to tell you I was not looking forward to this challenge.  I definitely am not a vintage girl. Finally, I wrapped my head around what to do and picked out this cute pair of love birds.  To achieve that vintage look, I used my neglected Koh-i-noor pencils to color them in and blended with OMS.  I found a great piece of floral paper from the Basic Grey  pack.  It matched up really nicely with Pretty in Pink and Always Artichoke.  A pretty lace bow and some Primas finished it off nicely. 

Want to play along?  Just link up your NEW creation on the Kaboodle Doodles blog — linking directly to your POST not just your blog.  Also, please make sure that you do not link your project to more than 10 challenges including the Kaboodle Doodles challenge.  We’ve had to remove many fantastic entries because rules were not followed.
