The Good Old Days.....

Hello everyone: I have a card to share with you today that features one of those nostalgic and classic phones of yesteryear, I've seen this phones only in movies but I think they are just so beautiful.  I'm linking this card to the Freshly Made Sketches challenge for this week. Here is my card.


The image is from a retired Flourishes stamp set called "Call Me" and all the images are so beautiful. I stamped it onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Sazon Jet Black ink and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps dipped in baby oil.
The beautiful pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley. Both the sentiment in the front and the inside are from the same set.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.


I stamped the cute cup with the flowers again by masking the rest of the image, with Dove Gray Stazon Ink. 
Here is a picture of the stamp set I used, so you can see how it looks like.



Here is the sketch that inspired my card.

Thank you for stopping by today, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

  1. Oh my look at the phone you colored! Perfect coloring you are an Artist! I wish you felt comfortable with Copic Markers but the darn things are expensive to collect! Lovely job with pencils! If my Craft Room wasn't flooded and under water (yep last night) I would take my pencils out for a spin!

    1. Thanks Patti, the effect of coloring with pencils is very different than with any other medium, Copics are to complicated for me and expensive too, I like my SU markers and Prismacolor pencils much better.
      So sorry your craft room is flooded, that is awful, I hope you can get it fixed and ready for you to get in there and do what you know how to do best, my friend. Miss seeing your gorgeous cards a lot!!!!!
