Days Gone By, Week 14

The theme at Stampin for the Weekend is Days Gone By and they want to see your card distressed or a fab new description vintage-ized.
Well I so had to use one of the new Elizabeth Bell stamps that are exclusive to SCACD the one I chose is Susan.
I coloured her with copics and mounted her on pearlescent paper which I cut with my nesties. The papers are from K & Company Classic K stack. I distressed the edges of the papers with scissors and used Faded Jeans distress inks on them.
The flowers are Petaloo and the roses are from my stash. I coloured the flowers with Light Candle Shimmerz which I received from the lovely Claudia Rosa 'thanks sweetie' I havent used Shimmerz before and I just love the effect. Gonna have to get me some more colours.

I am also entering this in the
Allsorts Challenge which is 'In an English Country Garden' this week.

Thanks for stopping by and dont forget to check out my candy.
