Over at Bella Creations one of the groups I joined is called Cartes Classique. At the moment, the first challenge is underway. There were three elements required on any card made, if you join Bella Creations you can find all the details there!
Here are the cards I made
On both cards I painted white cardstock with emulsion (latex) paint and then set about happily stamping with beautiful set of stamps, Anna Corba French Vintage Labels.
The postmark and bottle are Oxford Impressions stamps.The second card
Touches of lace, French text and a fabric bloom.

If you are interested in joining Bella Creations, click on any of  the badges on this Blog’s sidebar or click the link at the start of this post. They are such a warm group of crafters. Whether you make cards, tags, A.T.C.s, altered art, collage, scrapbooking,  an experienced stamper, new to stamping or never stamped before, there is something for everyone at this group. Lynne x

    these are both so gorgeous! I love the softness of each piece, colors, embellies…very romantic! I heard that a small earthquake was felt in the Scottish highlands this morning…hoping you didn’t feel it! Wanted to wish you a “Happy Rabbie Burns” day earlier…I’m sending a toast without the haggis! 🙂

    I love these two, Lynne. The fact that you started off with white paint gives the complexions such a lovely natural lightness.
