Spring colours at Vintage Stamping Challenges

Good morningfolks I'm a week late with my DT project for Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenges but you've still got loads of time to play along with our Spring colours challenge as it lasts until the end of the month so don't miss your chance to win a fabby voucher for stamps from Flonzcraft. We are a stamping challenge though so don't forget you need to use rubber/ clear stamps to enter, digi stamps aren't allowed!

I began by making some background with distress ink, Clarity stencils and my gelli plate. I stamped the Flonzcraft Silhouette on the smaller background and then distressed them with a craft knife and tea dye (of course lol) before layering on kraft cardstock.  I stamped some gorgeous images using Crafty Individuals stamps, coloured them with distress markers and cut them out before layering them up over the image and a little frill made from a doily. I've added some ribbon, pearls, a little rose and a sentiment stamped on a scrap of backing paper. The sentiment reads 'Eat cake and be merry' and is from Chocolate Baroque, I thought it would be perfect for this little tea party scene.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps: lots of layers
Crafty Calendar: anything goes
Lisa B Designs: Inked background techniques
Pile it on: use a bow
Penny Black and more: anything goes no digis
Penny's Paper Crafty: favourite fold/technique (distress ink background)
Simon Says Stamp:  all things bright and beautiful
Stempelsonnen: anything goes

Well as its Monday morning already I'd better get my skates on and go to work
have a great day and thanks for popping by
