IC204 inspired OCC Card

Happy Saturday and if you are celebrating *Halloween* today - I hope you are having a fun one!?!

Lori has thought of one more fun challenge before handing it off to the next month host!!! This time she is challenging us to create a *Vintage* card or anything *vintage inspired*!!! For all the details please visit the OCC Blog!!!

Once again the IC Challenge came to my rescue :)......I accidentally made the wrong challenge card for today...oooops....so I had to come up with a new card - yikes!!! So I waited for the IC204 to be posted and thank goodness I was immediately inspired!!! After looking thru the wonderful Franz Porcelain Collection I chose this beautiful *Angel Figurine* .

It reminded me of a card I recently created.....you can view it right here.





















I used the same beautiful *Banner of Joy* Set from Penny Black. It's available at the Stamper's Dream Store!!!

I inked the *Angel* image in Memento Black and colored it with Copic Markers. Next I covered up my image and sprayed my background with my new toy the Copic Airbrush System. At last I used the *right* embossing enamel and added the *Cracked Glass* technique.

The DP is from the Ski Slope Collection and for my card base I used the Vintage Cream CS. To finish the card off I ink distressed the edges, added the Laced Ribbon and the Large Halfback Pearls.

I'm not very good in creating *vintage* cards.....so I hope you like my idea and you'll come out and play with us....??? Make sure to check out the Samples at the OCC Blog!!!

I see you back tomorrow when we kick off the ODBD November Release Blog Hop - you don't want to miss it!!!

Have a great remaining weekend!!!
