Passion for ProMarkers

It's time for another challenge over on Passion for ProMarkers and it's my turn to set the challenge. So this week we would like to see Vintage or Shabby Chic. The sponsor for this week is Joanna Sheen and the prize is a £10 voucher.

The main image I've used is from an Aspects of Design stamp set and I used a technique that I saw in the latest Craft Stamper magazine. I've used the Ice Greys and instead of a blender pen, which the instructions said to use, I used blending solution as I don't have a blender pen. It still worked quite well and I was pleased with the overall result.

The side panel is made using a Tim Holtz die cut as a mask then sponging Weathered Wood DI over the top. The mesh stamp is a Paper Artsy stamp, stamped with Faded Denim DI. The text stamp is En Francais from Stampin' Up, again stamped with Weathered Wood DI.

The flower is a free stamp that came with an edition of Craft Stamper and I've used it to make the background as well as stamping it and cutting it out and the brad is a filigree from Stampin' Up.

I hope you're going to be able to join us this week.

Thanks for looking
