Vintage

This week over at Sparkle's Christmas Challenge #38 was vintage/retro. Mind you both vintage and retro are definitely outside of my comfort zone. But I figured, what the heck, I'll try. I've had these "worn" Santa looking pieces for awhile just sitting there. Pieces of a swap kit, that lord only knows what happened to the rest of it. The pieces were also water colored, which is something else I never do, because when I do it they seem to just look, well old.

So I decided to take the pieces, toss them on a rug like Santa would do after traveling the world and hope for the best. I guess between, the water coloring, the cream and kraft colors it just might pass for vintage. I guess vintage is something I need to work on, either that or just stick with my copics or colored ink.

I'm so glad I had time to play and post timely this week. Hope everyone is having a great week, I'll be back with other creations later.
