Vintage card for Grandfather

Hi all. It’s a bright day in Jersey today. Oh, I badly needed sunlight today as for the past 5 days I have only experienced thunderstorms and rains both in Charlotte and Jersey. Here is the card for today.

The week’s Tuesday Trigger @ Moxie Fab World kept me calling since I first saw it a few days back, but travelling kept me busy. The bright day set my mood and I began with making the card today. Isn’t the ‘Vintage Vagabond’ inspiring?

A straight view of my card here.

The black and white plates in the trigger are my inspiration for using the handmade stamped flower and newspaper in the background. The lines in the BG gave the idea for arranging the newspaper pieces. I have painted the die cut leaves in gold with a stick. Obviously the idea is triggered by the vintage brass in the picture. I have sprayed dark brown mist on the paper and vaguely painted gold here and there to enhance the vintage look on the card. The paint also added some texture. Take a closer look at the card on the left which shows the texture clearly.I will be presenting this card to my grandfather for his birthday on June 30th. Hope you liked my card .Your opinion about the card matters. Thanks for peeking in.
