Shabby Chic at Vintage Stamping Challenges

Hello folks, its time for a new challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges and this month our theme is 'Shabby Chic'. As always our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher from Flonzcraft so I hope you're going to play along. Remember we are a stamping challenge, no digis allowed!

I've created a little wall hanging for my DT project using a couple of my favourite Flonzcraft stamps
Ocean Cruise Ship Liner and one of the Gibson Girls. I stamped with Memento Tuxedo black on kraft cardstock and then coloured the scene with my panpastels.
I cut a frame from greyboard and crackled it with acrylic paint and then stamped the wording using stamps from Dreamees. I added a string flower topped with a button and a little twine bow and added some little union jack buttons.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Altered Eclectics: anything goes mixed media
Country view crafts: simply scenic
Craft Stamper Take it make it: anything goes with stamping
Little Claires: use kraft
Not just cards: anything goes
Rhedd's Creative spirit: anything goes
Simply Papercraft: anything goes/lots of layers

Thanks so much for visiting today

  1. Great scene! The Pan pastels are perfect to describe the waves with soft and hard edges and combining these 2 Flonzcraft stamps is a great idea.
