Vintage Quilt

I found these great old, vintage looking papers by KC Company and thought they would look good with Papertreys Quilted Sampler. I watercolored the quilt blocks, then went over it with a wash of Creamy Caramel to muddy the colors together and give it a worn look to coordinate with the worn look of the paper. I Cuttlebugged the background in Vanilla and topped it off with Papertreys Spring Moss ribbon!
