Vintage Chic Inspiration Blog Hop

 Hello! Today the Gina K Design Team are featuring the new StampTV Kit, Vintage Chic. I love the gorgeous, elegant images in this kit. The pattern paper included in the kit is my all time favorite so far. More details on my card below.

For more inspiration using the Vintage Chic StampTV Kit, check out what these blogs...
I started by sponging Memento Cantaloupe ink on Pure Luxury White card stock. 

Sponged Memento Tangelo. 

Sponged Memento Lady Bug. 

Then I stamped the dandelion image, from Vintage Chic, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 

I used my N3 Copic marker to color in part of the flowers. 

Added N5 to add some shading. 

I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and used a Sweet Mango card base. The pattern paper, brads and ribbon are from the kit. I sponged the pattern paper with Memento Cantaloupe and Tangelo ink.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
