Good Morning blog friends
This is my third day in a row - might just go for four tomorrow!
Its challenge day over at Moving Along With The Times challenge blog
This week's Challenge theme was chosen by our lovely Sue and is ….
'SHABBY CHIC and/or VINTAGE'
So we want to see creations that are either Shabby Chic or have a Vintage Image/theme or both! It doesn't have to be a card - as long as you follow the theme.
I've gone for the vintage look and used a lovely 1920s style lady stamp from Kanban called Cavendish Ladies. This is a stamp I've had for absolutely ages but have never used - I've no idea why because I bought them because I really liked them (there's another 2 in the set -also unused!) and I was really pleased with how it turned out, it was a change to make a DL size card instead of square- that's probably why I haven't used the stamp before!. The image is mounted up with a few layers of card but I've used very few embellishments - even the art deco corner stamps came with the set.
