Modern Antique

I don't usually 'do' simple, or modern, I prefer 'Vintage' and fussy but now and again its good to give different things a go. Out of your comfort zone can sometimes give your craft ideas a little boost.
 So first of all I went with a Milk card background mounted onto Antique Gold Pearl card. Then, using Double pierced squares, I have cut a small frame, one Splendid Swirl, and two leaves from the Blushing Rose die set. The flowers are also from the Blushing Rose set, background cut from Gold glitter card and the outline from Black foundation card

I have used an Arty background stamp for the 'splatter' effect, stamped with Perfect Medium and then sprinkled with Detail Gold embossing powder.

The sentiment is from the Live, Laugh, Love sentiment set also stamped with Perfect Medium and the Detail Gold embossing powder.
So a real mix of modern and antique, new and old dies and stamps. Let me know what you think
