VINTAGE VIBE, Vintage Fall Foliage...

Today was my Vintage Vibe class. Here is a look at one of the cards from the class. I love this new French Foliage stamp set (pictured below the supplies) from the Holiday Mini!  I am a sucker for Fall themes every time.  This card also happens to fit perfectly for the first challenge of the new SU-Only Challenge blog.  And I do love a challenge!  I even managed to use every single stamp from the set for this card.

This card has been distressed in just about every possible way:  all edges were distressed with the distressing tool, we color distressed the edges, color spritzed the stamped images with markers and tea stained them with the new Distressing Essentials Kit - not to mention splotched it with the splotch stamp from the stamp set.  This is about as far as I take Vintage style (along with another card for tomorrow).  I consider my style to be more of a Vintage Nouveau style as I am not one for all the clutter of normal Vintage style.  Hope you enjoy it!
