I had fun designing this for Fashionable Stamping Challenges "Vintage" theme, which runs two weeks. Since I don't do as much vintage or shabby chic, this took me a little out of my comfort zone! However, that is what makes a challenge fun, whether you are part of the design team or a participant, don't you think? Come on and strut your stuff at FSC, where stamps and ink are always in fashion and the required attire! We are also strutting over to Gingersnap Creations for the "Gal Pals" challenge, which of course is why I used these cuties!
Lost Cost Design, which were stamped on white card stock using Stazon Timber Brown. I added my Distress Inks starting with the lightest color. After it was distressed, I distressed it a little more by wrinkling my paper, which I then ran the darkest color over the raised areas. I then ironed each peace to flatten. The ladies I decided to stamp after I ironed the paper, because no one wants extra wrinkles on their faces!! The flower was made cutting one of the Tattered Florals from glassine paper, that Diane at 1CardCreator was so sweet to send me for a try out! Thank you, Diane. Added a few seed beads with Glassy Accents around the edges and same in the center with a few pearls. Added a piece of vintage lace from my Mom that I tea dyed. I curled a few corners and embossed the back panel with a Cuttlebug folder using techniques from the Technique Junkies, which I cannot speak highly enough about! So much of what I have learned is from being a member of this very talented and supportive group. That being said, I would like to offer a ONE-YEAR ONLINE SUBSCRIPTION of the Technique Junkies Newsletter to one of my followers. All you have to do is to let me know that you would be interested in participating in the Blog Candy giveaway and you are in. The winner will be announced in two weeks, with my next FSC post. Good luck and this is open to anyone, even if you already are a TJer!
