Card Making: Easter Card #6

When I saw this image in BW, I wanted to color it right away! When I did, I wasn't so happy with the result because the colors were too flashy and intense for me, and I didn't know what to do with it, but then I had an idea: I colored it lightly with the Ranger Antique Linen distress ink and the effect was just what I wanted (without knowing it!), it took a light yellowish tint, like pages from an old book, so vintage looking! Then I mounted it with foam pads on a piece of white cardstock that I had already colored with the Tattered Rose distress ink, I also accented the edges with a dark brown Copic and then adhered the lot on the card using foam pads once more, it gave a 3d look to the card.
For the card base I used light green cardstock but decided to give it an aged look, so I colored it with Bundled Sage distress ink, I also used a Tim Holtz mask.
Last detail the ribbon, I colored it with my copics because I wanted it more coral pink, I also added the pearls. It was missing something, so I decided to use one of Tim Holtz's Fragments, I had already printed some vintage postcards I found online and adhered a piece behind the fragment using Ranger's Glossy Accents. Then I made it into a pendant and tied it behind the ribbon with some DMC embroidery floss after coloring it with my copics because I wanted it to match the ribbon.
I must confess, I seriously LOVE my copics!
