Vintage Loving Cherub

Good morning everyone, today marks the start of a new challenge over at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is Distressed Vintage/Distressed Challenge so get out your distress tools and vintage papers and see what you can come up with!  I have used Loving Cherub and Postage stamps set:


Isn't he just a darling little cherub and what a dream he was to colour in you can get him over at Digital Delights here.  Papers I have used are Nitwits with Coredinations card stock, I paper distressed the backing paper first.  I used Copics to colour him and have put Stickles on his wings which you can just about see.  I distressed the post card with some distress ink Antique Linen and also Colour Box Papaya Cream which I also put on the filigree corner before embossing it.  I have cut the image out and matted him with my Nesties and used my Edgeabilities for the border.  The heart is a Nellie Snellen die which I have put through my Cuttlebug Script Embossing folder which I had first swiped with the Distress Ink.  Flowers, heart pin, crown pin and corner are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and ribbon is from stash.

Our sponsor this week is Magnolia-licious who have very kindly donated two mini stamps:


Sherwood Edwin and Tilda with Apple minis aren't they sweet?  To enter pop along to Delightful Challenge and enter, if you use a Digital Delights image your entry will count twice so that's double the chance to win!
