A try at vintage...

I've never really tried the vintage look before but I've fallen in love with all the PTI sets which have recently come out that are geared around the vintage look.  I had fun mixing and matching these sets to come up with this card.  The tea dye duo inks made it really easy to add some aging and depth to the edges of the elements.
I think I'm going to like this whole vintage thing!


Stamps: PTI: Postmarks, Mat Stack 4, Tiny Tags, Background Basics Text Style.

I love this card! I didn't think of pairing Baja Breeze with Groovy Guava. I love the two together with browns. Fabulous!
