GDT card for stamp something challenge blog.. Vintage with flowers
This is my second week as a Guest designer for stamp something challenge blog… thank you for having me girls… xxxx
This week the theme is Vintage with flowers and is being sponsored by
Simon says stamp.
now i got to say.. and appologise to everyone especially the DT girls.. i really have no idea how to achieve Vintage!!! thanks for the pointers Denise, i don’t know what i would have done with out them… hopeless aren’t i… rofl…
I used one of my hAnglar and stAnglar images for this one, after colouring her i cut her out.. (i went a bit wrong on the background…serves me right for trying new things…lol)
I got the flower part right! .. for my flowers i have used a mixture of handmade and bought… the handmade roses, (copper ones) are made using the Sizzix flowers, 3D die. which i cut from plain white card and then sprayed with this fabby stuff called moon glows moon shadow incandescent copper…i bought this from www.lindystampgang.com... love it.. i have bought a few other colours as well….
colours that i used to colour the hAnglar & stAnglar image… here is a link to the ebay shop for all you U.K peeps that would like to own some of these hAnglar & stAnglar beauties.. (their may not be any on there at the moment but keep a eye out for them to list as they go quick.. and i mean quick!!!!
well i guess that i have put off showing my card long enough… please be gentle if you leave a comment…though it doesn’t look very vintagy to me.. i really enjoyed making it.
the papers that i have used are from my minds eye. La Paperie by Jen wilson, i have gone round the edge with my zutter distrezzer and then with my sewing machine.. the fabby tickets are both a combination of Tim Holtz Ticket strip and some fantastic stamps from whimsy stamps called whimsy sentiment collection ticket sentiments….oh ***t i just ran over my ruddy big toE with the wheel on my chair.. ouch!!!!!!! hurt!!!…..Bleeding!!!!…just off to have a yell…… be back in a mo….
rofl…. i am back… toe is throbbing but doesn’t ting as much…. was going to delete the above bit but thought that i would leave as is…. (even though i sound like a nutter)
i am sure that it will be fine by the time this post goes live as i am writing this out in advance… :))))
right then before i was rudely interupted i was going to say the sentiment stamps have been designed by Raindrop Echo Designs other than the lace which is from my stash that is it…
hope that you can join in with the Vintage with flowers theme over at the
stamp something challenge blog..
thanks for having me girls…
