Hi there, we're going vintage at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this time around and as usual there's a fabulous prize up for grabs from our generous sponsor Marina of Cottage Crafts.
I've made a 6x6 card using kraft card and a gorgeous bp from Chocolate Baroque (a free download ) with faux stitching around the edges. I've used a real assortment of stamps on this card, the background is overstamped using oneof the smaller stamps from Fleurs and Parfum de Paris by Chocolate Baroque and i've used the large background stamp from the same set on the torn kraft card. This is one of my favourite background stamps as its so detailed and looks gorgeous stamped in versamark and dusted with perfect pearls, unfortunately its not showing up much in the pic.
The lady is a clarity stamp, I've had her for ages but i haven't inked her up before, she is coloured with promarkers and then her outfit is paperpieced with blue bp for the coat and angelina fibres for her sparkly hat, gloves and dress. I used some tiny blue faux gems for her necklace. I've added a piece of folded parchment stamped with one of Joanna Sheen's doily stamps and a fluffy white feather. I wanted to create the effect of those lovely mother of pearl buttons so I used a Lost Coast button border stamp, embossed with a blue shimmery EP and then coated with crackle accents. The needle stamp is from Crafters Companion.
The flowers are made using Ranger's kraft glassine, embossed with my trusty cuttlebug, highlighted with pale blue brilliance ink and then cut out with Crealies Flowers 12. I've added some faux pearls for the centres and added lace and velvet ribbon to finish off
