Make it Old

This is Rhubarb the Teddy Bear (Illustrated by Korin Sutherland) at Sweet -n- Sassy StampsI made this card for a couple of challenges.

First challenge is at Sweet n Sassy's digi challenge blog - SNSDC50 - Make it Old Use any distress/sponge techniques for your creation to look vintage/antique.  I sponged the diecut around Rhubarb and inked every patterned paper and the sentiment ticket. 

Second challenge is at The Sweet Shop - SSS155 - Pick an old sketch to use in celebration of their 3rd birthday.  I choose sketch SSS47, which is the first sketch shown on the post. 

I love the way this came out.  I love working with vintage anything and love sketches!

Here's what I used:
Copics - R20 E21 E23 E25 E29
Curved Rectangles, Classic Ovals Large Nestibilities - Spellbinders
Classics and Antiquity lines of paper - Paper Studio
