Happy Monday everyone ! Today is a little different in as much as this is the first day of a brand new vintage challenge called Vintage Stamping Challenges. We are sponsored by Flonzcraft who have a wonderful assortment of vintage style stamps as well as many others and who are also giving away a $20 prize each month to spend in their store. For the first challenge we've picked a really easy one which is Anything Goes and you've got a whole month to enter !
This is a card I made for my other half's birthday a few weeks back. I sprayed a piece of white CS with Dylusions sprays then stamped it with a Paper Artsy dotty stamp. I used an Artistic Outpost stamp and Olive Archival ink for the text panel and I've punched down the side using a Stampin' Up punch.
The main image is a Flonzcraft stamp and I've stamped it onto Speciality Stamping paper then masked it off and stamped over the top of it. I blended some DI around the edge and added the filigree corners. The little black bird was stamped onto black shrink pastic, cut out and then shrunk ! A bit of corrugated cardboard and Burlap to finish.
I hope you get chance to join us for our first challenge and make sure you hop over to the main blog to check out the rest of the DT's fabulous work.
