It's Saturday so it's time for another weekly Allsorts Challenge. This week Mervi has chosen the theme and it is
Anything Goes with option - Vintage
This week we again have 2 fab prizes for you:
Indigo Blu - Rose Blush stamp
Ruth Hamilton Design - 3 images of winner's choice.
Here's my card for this week.
The starting point was this large vintage style clear stamp I unearthed in my stamp box … I have had it for years and never inked it before. In fact the stamp is so big it wasn’t appropriate for my usual 6 inch square card, so unusually for me I cut a 7” * 5” card base. I created a smooshed background on watercolour paper with a mix of distress inks and distress oxides, then stamped my image with Vintage Photo DI and embossed with clear powder. I coloured the flower and leaves with distress oxide ink pads, mixing colours on my craft mat to produce shades that would work with my background and also with my DP; then I added a little background stencilling. I distressed the edges of the finished image panel with my distressing tool and a bit more sponged DI, and mounted on papers that had had the edges deckle cut and had some frantage shabby embossing enamel applied here and there and heat set. I used the most vintage looking ribbon I could find in my stash .. a beautiful velvet ribbon edged with lace, and added a few pearls and a sentiment which seemed to be a very similar font to the background text on my stamp.
Media: Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Distress Oxide inks; Stampendous Frantage Shabby White embossing enamel;
Tools: Darkroom Door stencil - “Diamonds”;
Papers, pearls and velvet ribbon/lace from my stash.

Me again Pauline - I forgot to say I allowed the back linking as you only just found the Snippets Playground. You've been blogging for ages - what took you so long? Wink. If you ever want to alter your long list of labels so that it's just a drop-down, just email me and I'll send you a little 'how-to'.
Hi Di … I first started blogging 13 years ago, but I more or less gave up crafting 7 or 8/ years ago and have only just got back into it over this summer … I found you as I joined my first post-return DT a month ago and Sarn is on it.
I am actually committed to thinning down my label list if I ever get round to it but it would be good to make it a drop down list if you could be kind enough to point me in the right direction x
Email me your address - mine is on the RH side bar of my blog - and will get back to you about the drop down.x
A wonderfully elegant card Pauline! The beautiful colours and design give it a lovely vintage look!! Well done!! Thanks so much for sharing at HLS Watercolour Challenge. Stay safe! :)
