Vintage Hats with A Day for Daisies

Hello! This is my second post for today. If you are here to check out the Stampendous and Graphic 45 hop, please scroll down to my next post, but check this one out first! ;) This week the A Day for Daisies team is featuring beautiful images from the Vintage Hats collection. I used Vintage School Girl 4 for today's project.

I loved coloring this image, which of course isn't unusual for ADfD images. For my crafting process, I always color my images first, well before I even think about my papers and embellishments. This image was colored with my Tombow Dual Brush watercolor markers. I was lucky enough to receive my latest care package from Imagine Crafts (I'm an Artist in Residence for them), which included the Tahiti Kaleidacolor multi-color ink pad. I rolled the colors on to my brayer, rolled the brayer on to my Mixed Media paper, and got the wonderful effect for my background which just so happened to coordinate perfectly with my colored image. 


I also grabbed some lovely (but plain) teal vellum and stamped the Vintage Contract stamp from Stampendous all over it and embossed it with Detail Gold powder.  I added an itty bitty piece of patterned paper in the corner of my image too.


Last, I stamped a sweet sentiment from the Friendship Assortment set, also from Stampendous. This color palette just feels like a breath of fresh air to me. I think I'll be using it again soon. Please be sure to visit the A Day for Daises Blog for more exciting projects from the Vintage Hats collection. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I am loving the vintage images you are using-- if I were a colorer, I'd be all over them myself! So I live vicariously through your coloring! Great background as wl. Particularly like the greeny vellum with gold EP.
