Hi folks, how's your weekend going? Here's my DT project for Fashionable Stamping Challenges where the theme is 'Times Gone By'. As always we have a wonderful prize from Marina our permanent sponsor from Cottage Crafts
I've taken inspiration from a stunning background, a freebie from Dover Publications which I fell in love with. I loved the wistful look in the lady's eyes and the train speeding away (although i've more or less covered it up on my card lol) made me think of a couple thinking of eachother across the miles.
I've used lots of different stamp for this card, the train track border is from Creative Expressions as are the cogs and sprockets. The silhouette couple stamp is from Joanna Sheen, stamped on acetate and backed with gilding flakes before being framed with a painted nestie die cut. I've added post cards created with Crafty Individuals stamps and a kraft tag stamped with a border stamp.
The black velvet ribbon is from my stash as is the black and gold lace. The flower is stamped on to card coloured with black gold glimmer mist, the stamps are from Chocolate Baroque, Steampunk Christmas. I've added a little metal rose charm from Prima in the centre.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
