Pedaling Past


This is a fun new set from Stampin' Up called Pedaling Past.
I used Basic Grey? Kissing Kate paper because I love the old fashioned, rustic look of it, just what I had in mind for this set. The crocheted flower is from the 1940's that I found on ebay. The detail on this is amazing, someone had a lot of talent to crochet this finely. The main image is done using the cracked glass technique to make it look older. Maybe I am becoming vintage myself since my sister had a bicycle just like the one in this set!

Lovely papers to use with this image, Joanne, and wow, is that crocheted flower ever gorgeous! I had to laugh when you said you felt like you were vintage...I KNOW I'm vintage when I can remember using a typewriter, rotary dial phone, and on and on the list goes!
