I started off by spritzing plain white card stock with pink and blue glimmer mist, and used a kleenex to dab off the excess.
Since my paper was still a bit damp from the mist, I attached the crepe paper ruffle with one of my most favorite tools in my studio...a stapler!
I once created a entire layout with no adhesive...just using a stapler! :)
Tearing is a great way to add dimension and helps add a vintage appeal.
I like to layer and play with different patterns. The rosette and pink swirl were made using a sizzix die. As you can see I used both- the positive and the negative from the swirl die cut.
I also love to incorporate vintage clip art in my projects. Some of my favorites come from Here!
