Tilda's Town Name Your Technique

It took no time at all to decide what I would do this week.  The challenge was to Name Your Technique at Tilda's Town and the Inventory Reduction Challenge was Vintage with Lace and Pearls.  If you've followed my blog for very long, you know that I love easel cards and lots of flowers.  And I use lace and pearls sometimes.

Here is my interpretation of vintage with lace and pearls.

I found this designer paper in K & Company's Classic pad.  The lace on this paper is just perfect for the vintage look.  Just for good measure I added the crocheted lace that I got from Magnolia-licious.
The oval Tilda is mounted on was cut using Spellbinders Floral Oval die.
All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The pearls were in my stash.
Tilda is colored with Copic Sketch markers.  Her headband and dress trim are colored with Gelly Roll Clear Star pen.

This is an easel card and here is the open version.

The oval was inked with SU's Pacific Point ink.  The sentiment is from Magnolia.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Tilda's Town Challenge #11 - Name Your Technique
Inventory Reduction Challenge  #92 - Vintage with Lace and Pearls

Many thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
