Vintage and Modern Mix

Good sunny morning all - hope you are all having a good morning so far.  I don't have much planned today, but I have a friend visiting with her kids so that will drive me around the twist, actually I mean that will be nice lol.

This card I was experimenting with.  Mixing a modern image with vintage papers.  I did try and give the image a more vintage look by colouring over what I had already coloured with an Ivory pro marker.

Im not really sure what I think about this card, I'm torn about it.

Anyhow, image is Saturated Canary coloured with pro markers.  Papers are from the Works (99p for a 30sheet 6 x 6 pad - you should get yourself along there:0)).  I have distressed all edges (card and paper) with my Tim Holtz distressing too.  Flowers and gems are from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated.

Thank you for looking and have a great day - Michelle :0)
