The Princess of France – petite notebook

Hello Everyone
To start this week on my Blog I have a quick post to share and unusually for me, only one photograph.
I always focused on photo real stamps from The Stampsmith (excluding the beautiful Ophelia) so it came as a surprise to me just how much pleasure I would have stamping with Estelle’s non-photo real stamps.
With the Princess of France from the Julia and Friends plate. I set about altering a petite notebook to send to the lovely Marie (Lost Bird Studio). This is such a pretty and feminine stamp.petitenotebooklynnemoncrieffThe Princess of France was stamped onto TAP then transferred to canvas.  It was a matter of vintage French book text (beautifully aged already without the aid of Distress Inks) adhered to the notebook with the addition of tea stained vintage lace and seam binding also stained with tea (different tea).
Many Thanks for your visit today.
Oh, one last thing to mention. TSC new challenge theme is underway. The lovely Paula has selected the theme of World Traveller.

    It’s beautiful! The stamp on the canvas makes is the perfect touch for the vintage theme. What’s TAP? (I’m new at this.). I love The Stampsmith photorealistic stamps, too. It’s amazing how much detail they have. Since I’m so full of questions (and you seem so nice) can I ask the best way to use a non-mounted rubber stamp? Do they have to be mounted on something permanently? They don’t stick on my acrylic block like my other ones do.

    How beautiful is this little notebook! The Princess of France is so very pretty, and the pink seam binding bow looks lovely against the text and tea stained lace. I’m sure Marie loved this.
