Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 45!

OK! What a way to celebrate friday....First off, it is my daughter's 13th birthday, it's cupcake friday AND I have a new image peek to share with you! Whew, where to begin?
Once again, I started with the sketch....then deviated a little...
I had this awesome large acrylic oval given to me in a gift bag and I thought it looked like a large egg, then I saw Taylor's sketch for this week and thought PERFECT!
This image is a peek of one of three new Saturday Evening Post images that are being released next friday (Dec 12th). I ADORE the vintage feel to this.

How to make vintage modern? Throw some modern colors at it! These sweet patterned paper colors are from Cosmo Cricket called "honey pie". I thought the stitching look in the patterned paper looked vintage but those are FAB-O colors!

To achieve this look. I first stamped my image on white paper (yes that was white paper) and then colored the image with my copic markers. I then created a mask out of a post it note and sponged in the background color to match my patterned paper. To adhere it to the acrylic oval I used glossy accents, it dries nice and clear. Added some vintage items like sewing and buttons and voila a MODERN VINTAGE easter card. Yes, I know it isn't easter yet....but it is never too early to start planning....look how fast Christmas crept up!

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
