Slotted between the Halloween inspired posts let me include something pretty here and there.
This is a post where you see me travelling back in time, back to June when I received my complimentary issue of Stampington & co’s Take Ten. It was a wonderful surprise to see a Feature of cards I had submitted using Oxford Impressions China Dolls. For each card I wanted a shabby chic appearance with the stunning photo real stamps as the focal and to include all my usual pieces of this ‘n’ that but decided to off-set all this faded romance of years gone by against empty space. Take Ten called the Feature Vintage Chic.
Obviously I cannot copy the intro in full but I will say that I was amazed at “Lynne distresses each card with sepia ink, providing a shabby chic tone which has become her signature” – yes,those words may be true but what astonished me is that they noticed I had a signature look!
The five cards I submitted were published but don’t intend to show them all here. You have better things to do with your time!A gathering of fragments. The text stamps are also from China Dolls. At times I stamped directly onto the cardbase, other times I stamped onto found paper.
She is possibly my favourite stamp from this plate. Seeing her reminds me that I have something I made at the beginning of the year and have not even posted as yet – where does the time go?I remember at the time I discovered this seam binding rose lying in my craft space, I had been making several for various other projects. It was exactly what was needed to fill that upper corner especially when paired with a fragment of dyed seam binding and lace.
Thank You for visiting this post. I might squeeze in another post before Sunday when it will be time to share my That’s Crafty DT post.
In the meantime, have a lovely weekend.
