I've used a substrate from PaperArtsy which is grey board that is coated with white card. This give a great surface to start from. I've used the Wendy Vecchi stencil Dotty with Grunge Paste in different areas. When it was dry I painted it with Vanilla Fresco Finish paint. Then I used a baby wipe with Vintage Lace and Moccha Mousse FF. I dried this off and then used some Chocolate Pudding FF around the edges, followed by French Roast FF. I've stencilled with French Roast too and stamped the text from the PaperArtsy Hot Pick 1215 set using Coffee Archival Ink. I did quite a bit more stamping on the background, but looking at it now you can hardly see any of it !
The leaves and flowers are from the new Lin Brown stamp set and instead of stamping on to black card I've used brown. I've stamped the flowers withVintage Lace and some Sherbert and Blood Orange FF in the centre. I've used the text stamp from the Hot Picks 1215 set over the flowers and the leaves using Coffee Archival Ink. I used a little plastic flower for the centre of one of the flowers that's been painted with Vintage Lace, then dabbed with Chocolate Pudding and when dry I've brushed Onyxite Treasure gold over it. I painted some card with more Vintage Lace and stamped the sewing room sign and mounted it onto brown card. The two thread cards are stamped onto Kraft card stock and then I've used Distress Inks around the edge. I brushed some more Onyxite Treasure Gold around the edge and added some buttons.
