Vintagey layout

Hello Friends!! Yesterday I decied to get out of my comfort zone and challenged myself to make a vintagey layout. It's the first time I made a layout and also anything vintagey (Although I had tried once..but failed).. So would request you to put on your critic caps and help me improve :)
Supplies: CS : Local, PP - Paper Mania, Distress inks - Vintage photo, Peeled paint, Stamps - Hero arts Blossom Art, Glitter balls - Pie lane, Slickles - Stickles - Diamond, Punch - Martha Stewart double arches

And here's the close up-

I am submitting it to following challenges -
Pretty Paper Studio challenge 2 - No Photo layout
For the love of crafting challenge 4- Blooming gorgeousness
CraftyJC Challenge #15 – Many Colours Holi!
As it was the first time, I decided to go for a smaller layout  - 8 x 8 inches. And like some of my previous posts..I loved playing with distress inks..:)
Well that's not all..I also organized my distress inks and blending foams this weekend. And here's the picture -

You can get the distress ink labels at -
I printed 2 sheets. One went on distress inks and other on my blending tags. I have stuck a piece of velcro to paper tag using a piece of "buckram"..not sure if it is the right word..but it is a drier sheet kind of material used by tailors to stick fabrics. When inserted between fabrics and ironed it sticks the fabrics together. I stuck it using fevicol on tag and then stuck the velcro on it followed by ironing on reverse. The bond is quite strong. I have tested removing and putting the blending foam multiple times. Hope you find this tip useful!

Hello freinds!
VARNA’s Creation has launched Clear Stamp. The stamps are made in our own country, yes you heard it right.. In India. To celebrate the joy and excitement, VARNA’s is having lots of interesting stuffs happening in their blog. One of such is this Blog hop.

So if you haven't already checked VARNA's beautiful & high quality "Made in India" stamps, hop on to VARNA's creation, checkout the sneak peaks and start on this hop.

You should have arrived here from Neha's blog.
For this blog hop, I selected the love mail box digi from VARNA's creation and the first thing that came to my mind was  the distressed sky. So here's my card -

The cloud background is made  using masking technique. The digi is coloured using a mix of distress inks and Steadler water colour pencils. (Looks like I just can't craft without my distress inks :D). The grass is from flonz stamps. the sentiment is from TPC.
Here's a closeup of the mail box-
