Script/ Books/ Print

I'm running ever so slightly late today ! So, here I am with my DT piece for the Fashionable Stamping Challenge. The theme for the next 2 weeks is Script/Books/Pages/Print. I've taken the opportunity to make a birthday card for a friend who's celebrating a significant birthyday this week. I've not added the number to the card as I don't think she's too impressed !

I started this card by ripping up a page from an old book and sticking it over some white card. I then covered it with Snowflake Fresco Finish. When it was dry I stamped the beach huts from the Artistic Outpost Boardwalk set with Cobalt Archival ink. I've then used a blank piece of page from a book and used a stamp from the Artistic Outpost Ephemera set and the text is a Katzelkraft stamp. I've then used Tea Dye, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Inks over the paper.

The main image is a Crafty Individuals stamp and I've used Distress Markers to paint her. The two circle stamps are also Crafty Individuals stamps. The flower is made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Strip die and I've layered it up and brushed Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the tips of the petals. The script ribbon is something I picked up on my last visit to The Bead Scene as are the little metal beads. The button is from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the main blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous work.

I'm also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which is Celebrate.
